10th Annual Fairfax Financial Shareholder’s Dinner

This will be our 10th year holding our Fairfax Financial Shareholder’s Dinner.  It’s set for Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.  We’ve always enjoyed support from Fairfax, and at our last dinner, Fairfax CEO Prem Watsa brought along about 12 other executives, managers and CEO’s with him.  We will also have four excellent speakers again this year!

The dinner is held in memory of JoAnn Butler, who was Prem Watsa’s executive assistant for many years.  JoAnn passed away on May 12, 2009 from colon cancer, and she was instrumental in the success of our dinners each year.  We raised $20,000 for “The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada” in JoAnn’s memory last April…almost $70,200 in the last 5 years!

Hi Folks,

Just a reminder to get your tickets ahead of time.  I don't want to be taking a ton of calls last minute and telling people that we are out of tickets already like last year!  40% sold already! 

Cheers!

70% sold now folks!  I will not be able to help you when it is sold out...we will only have a waiting list for cancellations. 

Also, due to the fact we will probably be combining Norm's pre-dinner with the Upper Canada room opening earlier at 4:30pm, we may have to reduce the seat count by about 15-20, to create enough room for people to mingle...so we are closer to 80% sold out if that happens!

Just not enough space for the pre-dinner anymore at the Railroad Car bar, unless we rent another small room/ballroom.  Also, many people like to stay at the Ben Graham Value Investing Conference right until 4pm or so.

Cheers!

Sanjeev,

Could you also tell us the timings of both presentation and dinner? I'm looking for air tickets to book and can't to stay overnight.

Thanks!
