Join Steven Pinker, Michael Shermer, and Special Guests for a dinner evening, and wine tasting

In conjunction with the annual fundraising drive for the Skeptics Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit science education organization, we are hosting a dinner, wine tasting, and star party at our home in the mountains of Altadena, just up the hill from Caltech. Cost is $600/plate. $550 of the $600 donation is deductible. Your donation guarantees you a front-row seat in Beckman Auditorium for Pinker’s 2pm talk, plus a signed copy of his new book, A Sense of Style. We will have a spectacular sunset view of all of Southern California from our cliffside home, and we will enjoy viewing Mars, Saturn, and the moon through our 8-inch Meade telescope that night. Good cause, good fun. Reserve your seat now with a minimum $600 donation and join us! For more information, please call our office at 1-626-794-3119.
