The WLCU Sydney was one of many financial sponsors of “An Evening with Dr Charles Malik” on 12 December 2022, held at Australian Catholic University, Sydney. The event was organised by The Friends of Dr Charles Malik Committee Australia & Notre Dame University, Lebanon. The evening saw close to 200 people, including many dignitaries, gathering for the Australian screening of the film Charles Malik: A Universal Person. WLCU Sydney President, Dr Shane Geha, was the MC for the evening.
On the balmy Thursday evening of 16 June, the WLCU hosted its first-ever expatriate event. Hi! Keefna? Ça Va? The name of the soiree is the traditional Lebanese greeting, that we as part of the Lebanese diaspora are tickled with whenever we visit the golden shores of the motherland.
The 2020 graduating class were celebrated with an exceptional first HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards event. Each of the recipients should feel enormously proud and be hopefully driven to continue this excellence in coming years, their careers and in life. We look forward to continuing this annual recognition of the great accomplishments of the young Lebanese Australians for many years to come.
The New President of the Cultural Union of New South Wales, Shane Geha, is aiming and preparing and enjoys great vocational experience and ambition to put the Union on a track to success. Geha visited El Telegraph’s offices with treasurer Richard Melki and Board Members George Bousamra and Hassan Sakr. They are members of a new Organisational Board, with Secretary Petronella Fakhry and Vice President Pierre Chami and Member Laudy Farah Ayoub.
