Lawrence residents can do their part in removing land mines by attending a dinner next month sponsored by Kansas UniversityÃ¢ÂÂs Office of International Programs.
The event, part of the international Night of a Thousand Dinners, will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 5 at Abe and JakeÃ¢ÂÂs Landing, 8 E. Sixth St.
Ã¢ÂÂThe goal is for us to raise a significant amount of money as part of the project for land mine removal and to highlight the KU connection to the worldwide problem,Ã¢ÂÂ said Diane Carlin, dean of International Programs and the Graduate School.
Suggested donation for the dinner is $15 per person or $25 per couple, or $10 and $15 for students. Money will go to Adopt-a-Minefield, an international organization for detecting and removing mines.
Reservations can be made by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 864-6161. The event will include appetizers and live music from Swing Canyon.
