On Saturday, December 3rd the Big Man himself Santa came to our Ramallah Club to have Breakfast with our little ones and to take pictures with them. Not only was a full buffet breakfast served, but also provided was Cookie Decorating, Christmas Pinecone Tree Decorating, a Photo Booth, Letters to Santa and much MORE! Approximately 120 members came to partake in the festivities. In addition, donations were collected to assist Catholic Charities as they assist Syrian Refugees in Jacksonville, Florida. Much appreciation goes out to Sandy Saad Salem for coordinating an amazing event as well as her committee who included Ramsey and Sally Salem, Katherine Shunnarah Akel and Christy Farmand Rukab.
Our club hosted a New Year’s Eve Hafla featuring Emad Batayeh and his talented band, as well as DJ Rezeq. Brielle Behira opened the evening with a beautiful belly dancing performance to approximately 400+ attendees who also enjoyed non-stop music (Arabic and American) as well as a champagne toast at midnight. Much appreciation and thanks goes out to the New Year’s Eve committee for an enjoyable and successful event.
