Rarely is cheap cialis online there ever an opportunity for anyone in the DFW area to have an audience with Royalty.Â Fortunately for us, On Friday, May 8th, beginning at 11am in the Landmark Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Dallas hotel at Reunion, the Genesis Women’s Shelter is offering that rare opportunity by welcoming Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan as the keynote speaker for their 16th annual Genesis Mother’s Day Luncheon titled “Peace on Earth Begins at Home.”
Born Lisa Najeeb Halaby, this former Princeton Graduate became the first American-born queen of an Arab country. She took the name Noor al-Hussein or “Light of Hussein” when she married His Majesty King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan in 1978 in a traditional Islamic ceremony at the Zaharan Palace.Â Â
In addition to serving as an international humanitarian activist and outspoken voice on issues of world peace and justice, Queen Noor chairs the King Hussein Foundation (NHF) and the King Hussein Foundation International (KHFI) founded in 1999 after the passing of her husband, to promote and build on King Hussein’s humanitarian vision and legacy in Jordan and abroad.Â
Â ”Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan’s passion for peace throughout the world is a wonderful tie-in to Genesis Women’s Shelter’s work toward peace and safety for families at home,” said Jan Langbein, Genesis Women’s Shelter Executive Director and immediate past Senior Policy Advisor to the Director of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW).Â “We are so grateful for the support of this community which enables us to provide safety, shelter and services to thousands of area women and children in need.”Â
Queen Noor remains close to her four children she had with King Hussein: Prince Hamzah, born in 1980; Prince Hashim, born in 1981; Princess Iman, born in 1983; and Princess Raiyah, born in 1986.Â
“Genesis Women’s Shelter is anticipating a sellout with such a rare appearance by someone so respected for her work across the globe,” said luncheon co-chairs Joan Eleazer and her daughter Layne Pitzer.Â “We strongly encourage individuals and corporations to reserve their tables early.”
