    Because of concerns about the evolving COVID-19 public health situation, we are postponing the March 19, 2020 Solidarity Fundraising Dinner. We deeply regret any inconvenience.​

    The events in Lebanon in recent months have exacerbated already challenging economic circumstances causing great hardship for many members of our community, including and especially current AUB students and their families. On November 27, 2019, we launched a worldwide Solidarity Appeal seeking support for a Student Solidarity Fund (to assist current students) and a Patient Solidarity Fund (to help patients seeking care at our Medical Center). 

    We are organizing the AUB Solidarity Fundraising Dinner on March 19, 2020 to support the worldwide Solidarity Appeal and raise urgently needed funds for student scholarships and needy patients. 

    The dinner will take place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, a stunning location with breathtaking views of the city.

    The evening program will include:

    • Welcoming remarks by Board of Trustees Chairman Philip S. Khoury

    • Address by AUB President Fadlo R. Khuri

    • Presentation of the Presidential Science and Humanism Award to Nobel Laureate Harold E. Varmus, followed by a discussion with Trustee Huda Zoghbi

    • Performance by oud and violin virtuoso and composer Simon Shaheen

    • Live fundraising appeal

    • DJ & Music

    There are many high-profile opportunities to support this important initiative. ​Click here to find out how to support the AUB Solidarity Fundraising Dinner
