"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."
"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."
