One Lebanon

Date: 17/11/2016 - 26/11/2016

For the third year in a row since its establishment in 2014, *ONE LEBANON*
has officially announced its upcoming Annual Solidarity Concert that will
take place on Friday, *November 25* at *BIEL* during a Press Conference at
the Phoenicia Hotel that gathered Minister of Tourism Mr. Michel Pharaon,
ONE LEBANON Founder & President Soprano Tania Kassis, Spanish Ambassador
Milagros Hernando, some celebrities that will participate in this year’s
concert like Walid Toufic, Nizar Francis, Anthony Touma, Silvio Chiha,
Maritta Hallani, Pierre Rabbat, Marc Hatem, Omar Dean and Ghady Bechara,
ONE LEBANON Board Members, volunteers, friends and supporters.

The date of November 25 was deliberately chosen by ONE LEBANON as a
celebration of Lebanon’s independence and the theme chosen "تيبقى الإستقلال
عيد " is a message of hope targeting the youth; yet inclusive of all the
Lebanese generations.

Pierre Rabbat mastered the ceremony with a touching introductory word on
how ONE LEBANON worked hard to unite at a time when Lebanon needed it the
most. Then Tania Kassis spoke of “the timing of this year’s concert that
is particularly important at a time when Lebanon is celebrating a new
president after 2 years of void. ONE LEBANON is not a political party or
movement, so we hope that every politician will become ONE LEBANON”.

Tania Kassis mentioned that this year’s concert profits will be offered
like every year to the children of the Lebanese Army Martyrs and expressed
her gratitude to the Ministry of Tourism for its support to ONE LEBANON,
and thanked Minister Elias Bou Saab for sharing the same educational
responsibility and patriotic vision of ONE LEBANON by encouraging schools
to participate in this national celebration and highlighting the new
ONE4ONE initiative were youngsters are encouraged to sponsor disadvantaged
kids by buying additional bracelets that will be distributed by the
Ministry of Education.

Minister Pharaon thanked Tania for her pioneering spirit of having united
Lebanon over the past years, at a time when this type of dialogue was most
needed. ‘Now that we have a president, and hopefully a government before
Independence Day, we have every right to fully celebrate this day.”

At the end of the conference, Tania Kassis invited the celebrities present
to address the public.

After the success of last year’s concert that drew an audience of 10,000
and over 30 celebrities, this year’s stage will welcome Walid Toufic, Moeen
Shreif, Michel Fadel, Tania Kassis, Ziad Bourji, Aline Lahoud, Naji Osta,
Saad Ramadan, Re-Mi Bendali, Mike Massy, Maritta Hallani , Marc Hatem ,
Nemr Abou Nassar, Nizar Francis, Yourself El Khal, Pierre Rabbat, Pamela el
Kik, Wissam Saliba , Grace Ayanian, Mirva Kadi, Ghady Bechara, Joseph
Hoayek, Nicolas Mouawad, Omar Dean, Charbel Ragy, Sylvio Chiha and Zeina
Daccache, all joining the ranks of the ONE LEBANON ever-growing family.
