On Friday March 16, 2018, in Houston, the Center for Arab American Philanthropy (CAAP) honored Dr. Farouk Shami, the CEO and founder of Farouk Systems USA, with their first ever “Outstanding Arab American Philanthropist Award”. The event is part of CAAP’s inaugural Threads of Giving Gala and was held at The Houstonian Hotel. The evening included a VIP reception, dinner and the internationally renowned musicians Le Trio Joubran providing a classical Arabic musical program.

The Center for Arab American Philanthropy’s goal this year was to not only award Dr. Shami for his charitable endeavors globally but also show him as a successful businessman and innovator. Dr. Shami has given to hairdressers in need whenever a natural disaster has occurred. He has helped to build schools for education and manufacturing plants to help those in need of a career or a job. He has been passionate about protecting the environment and also about protecting the health and well-being of hairdressers.

In addition to his humanitarian efforts, he serves on the board of many organizations including the NDUF (National Defense University Foundation) and is a frequent speaker on leadership at Harvard University. His many awards include: The Palestinian Diaspora Award, The International Salon/Spa Business Network (ISBN) Legend Award, Apollo Green Award, Beautymaker Award (BMA) & BMA's First World Humanitarian, Arab American Businessman of the Year and the 2003 Ameristar Award to name a few.
