Paul enjoys time with his wife and four kids, especially summer vacations where they have traveled to Spain, Greece, California, the Rocky Mountains, and Lebanon. Paul and his brother started the Annual Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival at Saint Elias Maronite Catholic Church in Birmingham, Alabama. The two-day event attracts more than 8,000 people, educating the local community about the rich Christian Lebanese heritage and traditions through food and dancing. Since its inception in 1999, the festival has given 25 percent of its proceeds to outside charities, both locally and nationally, amounting to over $467,000. His work on the festival was recognized in 2014 when he was inducted into The Knights of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great, the highest honor a lay person can receive in the Catholic Church, for outstanding community service, stewardship and leadership.
