LGB BANK sponsors the “Heritage Festival” in Abbey
As part of its continuous support to social activities, LGB Bank sponsored the “Third Annual Heritage Festival” organized by the Society of the Revival of Abbey Heritage. The event was held on July 3rd and 4th at the Lebanese University Building, in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Municipality of Abbey-Ain Dravil and a number of NGOs and associations, in the presence of representatives from foreign embassies in Lebanon.
On Saturday, participants enjoyed Lebanese folkloric dance entertainment under the title “Abbey Sings”, in addition to sword shows, music and dance pieces from the heritage of the participating countries. Moreover, artist Maiz Al Bayaa alongside his band gave a live performance that was followed by a free village dinner for all attendees. Exhibitions of paintings, craftsmanship and handicrafts continued throughout the two days of the festival.
“Our sponsorship of cultural and heritage activities comes from the Bank’s social responsibility to invest in the development of the community, especially when it comes to historical heritage activities, thus, the festivals of Abbey are an opportunity for the Lebanese citizen to learn about different civilizations.”, said Vice Chairman and CEO of LGB BANK.
