A great time was had by all at the 5nd Annual Archbishop’s Dinner which was held last Wednesday, October 11 at the Cunard Centre overlooking the Halifax harbour. Over 450 dinner guests shared stories, enjoyed a delicious meal, and took part in a live auction that included unique items like a private dinner party catered by a local chef and a painting by our own Archbishop Mancini. Attendees heard from special guest speaker, prominent local developer Wadih Fares, who spoke about the influence his faith has on both his family and business life.
The archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth is pleased to have Mr. Wadih M. Fares as the guest speaker at this year’s Archbishop’s Dinner & Silent Auction!
Wadih Fares immigrated to Nova Scotia as a teenager in 1976 escaping the civil war in Lebanon. He learned English, graduated from university with an engineering degree, and went on to establish his own company in 1983. An innovator, he combined building design, construction and property management into one company that continues to transform Halifax’s landscape and boost the local economy.
