(E) 1000 Dinners - part 1
Dear All, 
In its effort to clear land mines around the world, the 
Organization of American States (OAS) is sponsoring a 
cocktail event Thursday, Nov. 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., 
at its beautiful headquarters in Washington, D.C. 
(Organization of American States Main Building; 17th 
Street and Constitution Ave. N.W.; Washington, D.C.). 
The event is open to the public, and a donation of $10 is 
requested. Please e-mail me ( if 
anyone would like a copy of the invitation in Microsoft 
Word format. 
The cocktail event is being held in conjunction with the 
world-wide fund-raiser to clear land mines called "Night 
of a Thousand Dinners." On Friday, Nov. 30, people around 
the world will host and attend dinner parties to raise 
funds and awareness for land mine clearing. 
Croatia is one of the countries listed on the "Night of a 
Thousand Dinners" Web site,, 
in which "land mines problems are most prevalent." 
I understand that a large dinner will be held at the 
Sheraton Hotel in Zagreb. President Mesic may attend that 
I'm not sure if any of the money raised at the Thursday 
night event in Washington will go towards clearing land 
mines in Croatia, but it should be fun and worthwhile

Here's the text of the invitation: 
The Secretary General of the Organization of American 
States, Dr. César Gaviria, and The Permanent 
Representative of Canada to the OAS, Ambassador Paul 
Durand, cordially invite you to a cocktail reception 
“The Night of a Thousand Dinners” 
celebrating our joint efforts to rid the Americas of 
landmines on Thursday, November 29, 2001, From 6:00 to 
8:00 p.m. 
The Organization of American States 
Main Building 
17th Street and Constitution Ave. N.W. 
Washington, D.C. 
The Organization of American States (OAS) and the 
Permanent Mission of Canada to the OAS are proud to be 
affiliated with the Night of a Thousand Dinners, an 
initiative which encourages individuals and businesses 
across the world to host dinners for friends, family, and 
co-workers in order to raise awareness and resources for 
mine action. This initiative was launched by the Canadian 
Landmine Foundation, a private sector charitable 
organization dedicated to the eradication of 
anti-personnel landmines throughout the world and to 
ending the human and economic suffering caused by these 
mines. The OAS has a particular interest in raising 
awareness and funds for mine action as its Member States 
have adopted the goal of the global elimination of 
antipersonnel landmines and the conversion of the Western 
Hemisphere into an antipersonnel-land-mine-free zone. 
For the Americas to accomplish this goal, financial and 
human resources are needed. Your kind contribution will 
be greatly appreciated; we suggest a minimum of $10.00. 
Checks may be made payable to the Victim Assistance Fund. 
Please send your payments along with your ticket stubs to 
the OAS Mine Action Program, Room 850-K, 1889 F Street 
UPD/ AICMA Washington, DC 20006-4499. 
If you have any further questions, please contact 
Claudia Estrada at the OAS Mine Action Program, 
202.458.3343, or via email at, or 
Patrick Alwine at the OAS Mine Action Program,
