About

On August 4, 2020, the entire world witnessed the devastating explosion in the port of Beirut that caused unfathomable loss of life, permanent injuries, and widespread homelessness to the people of Lebanon.  Hospitals were damaged and overwhelmed. The medical centers that managed to stay open continue to suffer from shortages and backlog exacerbated by the financial crisis gripping the country, making medical supplies scarce and patient costs difficult to cover. The Lebanese-American community in Peoria has come together to organize a remarkable effort to provide much-needed relief.

A multi-tier benefit for LAU and the LAU Medical Centers, From Peoria to Lebanon springs from the generosity of Dr. Tony Karam, the Peoria Riverfront Museum and the Scottish Rite Theatre. With an art exhibition, an art auction, and a concert by acclaimed pianist Dr. Tony Karam, this unprecedented collaboration seeks to raise relief funds for LAU Medical Centers and the Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine.

Please check the "Updates" section below for more information about the many events and opportunities to give. The art auction site can be viewed at bit.ly/PeoriaToLebanonArt. Thank you for supporting our effort to send love and help From Peoria to Lebanon!
