Hello, everyone. :-)
I've just received word about a fundraising event that may interest some of you.
You may have heard, or perhaps read, the book Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, a memior about forming the Central Asia Institute to provide educational opportunities in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Although the East Bay Book Club has not read this book as of now, it was on last year's book selection poll to pick books for the 2010 reading schedule.
If you're interested, the author will be making an appearance in Santa Clara. On the evening of Saturday, September 25, 2010, there will be a gala event at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara that will include a reception, dinner with Pakistani cuisine, a presentation by Mortenson himself, and a concert to wrap up the evening. Proceeds from ticket sales (the price is $125 for an individual) will go to help bring education to more children in need.

Thank you. :-)
Organizer, East Bay Book Club
