Title: 2018 PDH FFH Dinner
Post by: Parsad on April 06, 2018, 10:09:52 PM
Hi Folks,

This is our 13th dinner and probably last one in its current support is clearly waning from year to year.  We've raised $160,000 in memory of JoAnn Butler, Prem's executive assistant and our friend who passed away from colon cancer in 2009.  Everything has its time, and we are very happy we were able to do this for as long as we have.

I don't know exactly what next year's event will look like, as the week is so full of other wonderful events, it has relegated ours to one where attendance is decreasing year to year.  The most likely conversion will be from a dinner to a simple networking event, with Fairfax coming in around 9pm with their panel.  We will probably retain the silent auction, and continue to raise money for Crohn's & Colitis Canada, but we will get rid of the dinner and reduce the price to attend to something nominal to cover the rental of the room and space. 

So, I'm encouraging all of our supporters, old and new, to join us for our last such dinner.  We have some great speakers lined up, including our usual Fairfax panel moderated by Jeff Stacey...and of course, Francis Chou answering questions till 11pm or later!  Truly looking forward to seeing you last hurrah!

I've been to this event twice. Unfortunately, won't be there this year. Wanted to congratulate you on doing a fantastic job setting up the dinner evening, advertising it and making it a wonderful event. Wether it continues in the future or not, well done!
