Arab American Institute to Honor Starz


A Starz Encore Group LLC public-service announcement calling for tolerance

Starz chairman John Sie is expected to accept the award.

Also expected to attend are Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.),
House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.), Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) and
several Arab-American entertainers, including actor F. Murray
