UBC’s International Relations Students Association is once again presenting the Night of a Thousand Dinners (N1KD) that will take place November 23rd at the Croatian Cultural Center. Renamed to “Meals for a Mine-Free World” for 2010, the gala raises funds and awareness for the Canadian Landmine Foundation through dinners across the country.

“As the largest student-organized landmine awareness event in the world, N1KD attracts numerous students, faculty, diplomats, business professionals, and social activists in the heart of Vancouver. This year we will be featuring the beautifully startling V. Tony Hauser’s Living with Landmines art installation, as well as a performance by the Corpus Christi College Chamber Choir.”

Tickets are available online, from an IRSA member, or at the UBC SUB for $40 (UBC students) or $80 (community members). Admission includes your donation to the cause, a 3-course dinner, and entertainment.

If you would like to attend this gala to learn more about the issue and support a great cause, you can enter to win two tickets. Here’s how:
