Himalayan Foundation Dinner

On behalf of Moun­tain Mad­ness and as a friend of the Himalayas, I want to let you know about a very spe­cial and worth­while event ded­i­cat­ed to mak­ing small mir­a­cles hap­pen: the Amer­i­can Himalayan Foundation’s Annu­al Din­ner, Oct 26, 2011. In atten­dance will be an impres­sive par­ty of climbers with a com­bined total of 40+ ascents of Ever­est — among them 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.

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.

Please email or call our friend Nor­bu Ten­z­ing at Norbu@​himalayan-​foundation.​org or call 415−288−7250 to learn more about the din­ner and the AHF.

Thank you,
Mark Gun­log­son
