Paul Bolus, Co-Chairman of the Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival, said, "St. Elias has shared 25% of proceeds from the annual event amounting to over $275,000 in the past 14 years with area charities as a way for St. Elias to give back and demonstrate, by example, the Christian value of giving to those in need."

Lebanese delicacies offered during the two-day Festival include Baked Kibbee, Rolled Grape Leaves, Spinach Pies, Baked Kibbee and Falafel Sandwiches, Tabouleh (Lebanese Salad), Grilled Lebanese Lemon Chicken, Loobia (green beans), Rice, Homus and Pita Bread.

Prices for food will range from $3.00 a la carte spinach pies, meat pies, and grape leaves to plates of food for $10.00 and up.

Prices will range from $2 for most desserts to $15.00 for a dessert sampler.

The festival is open until 9:00pm Friday, and from 10:00am until 9:00pm Saturday, April 26, 2014.
