American Himalayan Foundation Celebrates 30 Year Anniversary with Dinner on October 26, 2011, San Francisco
Our good friends at the American Himalayan Foundation are celebrating its 30 year anniversary this year with a very special and worthwhile event dedicated to making small miracles happen: the American Himalayan Foundation’s Annual Dinner, Oct 26, 2011 in San Francisco.
In attendance will be an impressive summit party (in both senses!) with 40+ ascents among them – from the first Americans on Everest, Jim Whittaker and Tom Hornbein, to Ed Viesturs, Pete Athans, Jon Krakauer, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and the world record holder Apa Sherpa (all of whom are AAC members by the way).
Also in attendance will be a summiter of a different kind: Dr. Ashok Banskota, Director of the Hospital and Rehab center for Disabled Children in Kathmandu, whose team works miracles for young lives every day, mending the broken limbs and bodies of Nepal’s poorest disabled children.
It will be a very entertaining evening, full of tall tales – and perhaps some poignant ones —and a few surprises. Doing good, being kind, having fun. For information or reservations please email our friend Norbu Tenzing at Norbu@... or call him at 415-288-7250.
This will be a fun event for a good cause and an opportunity to visit with others who share an interest in the Himalaya.
