Here’s a heads up on a good thing. On Monday June 4th, that’s one week from today, Cambridge House is organizing the “David J. Coffin Memorial Fundraising Dinner” (click that link to go see the details on the Cambridge House page) in Vancouver, BC. Here in the words of his brother Eric is a line about the evening:
“The purpose of the dinner (other than to get together and drink enough to forget what our market screens look like!) is to raise funds for the “David J. Coffin Memorial Bursary in Geology” which is being established at UBC.”
As for the cost, individual tickets are $250 and there’s an option to buy full tables which has been popular, or so I’m informed. Here’s Eric again on that:
“There are standard tables at $2000 – that is a cheque written to Cambridge House (a business expense) and the net proceeds of the dinner will go to the Memorial Bursary in Geology at UBC in David’s name. The premium tables are $10000 – that will be a cheque written directly to UBC and is a charitable donation in full. They are not advertising the fact it’s working that way on the Cambridge site which is why I’m sending the email directly. Cambridge can take care of forwarding that and making sure it gets to the right place.”
So folks, if in Vancouver and you’re looking for a good time evening next week look no further. We hear that organizers are expecting somewhere between 300 and 400 people to attend, so why not make it yourself and push the number towards that upper limit. You’ll help to raise money for a new bursary in Geology and doubtless enjoy a fun evening.

Meanwhile, if you can’t attend but would still like to make a donation to the cause, here’s the page to go to for that.
