Friends of Socrates!
You’ve lived to see the day! After eight years, SITC is having its First Annual Fundraising Christmas Gala Dinner Event! This will be an historic Manhattan event, featuring Santa Claus, Socrates, and so many other dizzying surprises you might want to leave the room now and again, just to clear your head…

Dr. Francis Collins will speak on: “The Language of God: A Believer Looks at the Human Genome”. Our distinguished speaker for the evening will be Dr. Francis Collins, who was the Head of the Human Genome Project. He has appeared on the cover of TIME, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2007. Impressed?

The Gala will feature a reception at 7pm, followed by a sumptuous Christmas dinner in the University Club’s College Hall. Dr. Collins will speak on: “The Language of God: A Believer Looks at the Human Genome.” During the dinner — but not during the speech — there will be carolers caroling from table to table and other surprises. Santa Claus will be making a special appearance — as will none other than Socrates himself! (Both will be wearing artificial white beards. Feel free to give ‘em a good yank, and have a hearty yuletide laugh!) Socrates will speak briefly, but in Greek. (Please, no hemlock jokes — he’s heard ‘em all!) CONT.
