2003-Aug-21: The Third Annual Night of a Thousand Dinners

On November 25th, Miriam Makeba, "Mama Africa", will join Sir Paul and Heather, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, and many other world-famous celebrities for the third annual "Night of a Thousand Dinners". Once again world leaders, celebrities and ordinary people will gather to raise awareness and money for the removal of landmines. The dinners will be part of the No More Landmines – Day of Action - a day set aside to raise awareness and funds.

Do you need some ideas? Perhaps a look at the McCartney menu will inspire you. This is what Sir Paul and Heather will be serving their guests that evening:
