Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT) Gala Fundraiser
The Lebanon Mountain Trail Association (LMTA) organized its first fundraiser gala dinner at Beirut’s Phoenicia Hotel on 5 December, 2014. The Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT) Gala gathered 290 guests, including the Minister of Environment, Mohammed El Mashnouk, President of the Board, Karim El-jisr, and board members, friends, donors and supporters who came together to celebrate the LMT and pledge additional support to the trail. Speakers and live performers animated the event. The festive event featured a live auction of art pieces, which were generously donated by Lebanese artists. The LMT is a 470km path and the first long distance trail in Lebanon. It crosses 75 towns and villages from the north to the south at altitudes ranging from 600 to 2000 meters above sea level, as well as one World Heritage Site, two biosphere reserves, and four protected areas. The LMT promotes responsible tourism and invites travelers to experience the beauty of Lebanon’s hidden treasures and conserve them. Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, the LMTA is now able to continue its mission to develop and protect the trail, and safeguard the cultural and natural assets along it, while enhancing the income levels of local communities.
