On March 21, per tradition, Rotary Club Beirut Cosmopolitan in collaboration with Rotary Club Beirut Pax Potentia hosted an iftar party for 33 kids ages 7 to 14 with their assistants. These less privileged, non-institutional kids were treated to an evening of fun at Burger King in Jal el Dib.
  Games, face painting, picture taking were provided by the young Pax Potentia Rotarians. Service Committee chair offered roses to all on the occasion of Mother’s day. Upon their departure, every child was given a gift bag with a cupcake to enjoy later.
  This heartwarming event was attended by few Rotarians from Rotary Club Beirut Cosmopolitan who equally enjoyed the evening. Nothing beats a smile on a child's face, and nothing is more noble than spreading cheer and good will.
 
On February 24, Rotary Club Beirut Cosmopolitan members and guests were treated to a very entertaining evening of theater preceded by snacks and drinks in the most welcoming and fun ambiance.
 
 Fundraising chair, Joelle Feghali, and her committee chose a Lebanese play, written and directed by a famous Lebanese author, Yehya Jaber featuring the brilliant talent of a Lebanese actress, Nathalie Abu Naoum, who brilliantly dominated the stage in a monologue of the utmost relevance and complexity of emotions. 
 
Many thanks go to the fundraising committee for thinking out of the box to find ways to enable us to continue our work and service for our community. In these hard times, we Rotarians cannot do enough to serve the ever growing list of demands of people and communities disenfranchised by the terrible circumstances.
