SOLD OUT AGAIN! The Golden Cedar Awards Gala Draws Hundreds

(BIRMINGHAM, MI)...The Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce announced late tonight that again this year, the annual Golden Cedar Awards Gala has completely sold-out and tickets are no longer available. Long known as the hottest event of the year, the annual Gala set for this Friday, is one of the most sought after black-tie spectaculars. Hundreds of confirmed guests will fill the Hotel St. Regis Grand Ballroom in tuxedo's and evening gowns throughout the night. Gala Patrons will be treated to an exhibit by renown artist Adnan Charara, the sounds of the season from the Twelfth Night Singers, specialty promotions from Finlandia & Chambord, a royal culinary feast with an afterglow that will include an International Coffee Station. Of course the highlight of the evening will be the presentation of Golden Cedars to this year's Honorees. A who's who of celebrities and notables will fill the halls of the newly refurbished Hotel St. Regis, including the singing of the national anthem by Detroit Red Wings Singer Karen Newman, a Special Tribute to Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis, and stories and anecdotes from featured speaker Paul W. Smith of WJR AM-760.
