In the Authors’ Words:
“It was a lovely evening, I couldn’t have asked for more…I want to name certain people without whom this event would have never been possible: My uncles Assad and Joe Yazbeck, my father Maroun Boustany, my grandmother Nawal Yazbeck for coming all the way from Lebanon, Samir Khoneizer for covering the event and last but not least all the sponsors.
Finally and most importantly the entire team of The Hub Hotel for hosting and making the evening possible and above all memorable. I wish the Hub Hotel all the luck and success in their new opening.”
