The Night of a Thousand Dinners had a good showing. There was about 150 people. The night featured middle east dancing, and everyone had a good time. I am anxious to find out how much the dinner raised.
With the land mine ban accepted by most nations, the program is making great strides in cleaning up mines around the world. Hopefully, there won't be a need for such fund raisers in the near future.
The US is one of the few nations that has not signed the ban. The main reason is the minefield between North and South Korea. Considering the delicacy of that situation, I have to agree that it is best not to address the problem.
