Darwin Day 2017
The Humanists of Utah invite you to attend our 10th Annual Darwin Day Celebration from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the Officer’s Club at the University of Utah on Saturday, February 11, 2017.
We are thrilled to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the first Darwin Day celebration in Utah, and we hope you will join us for a fabulous Celebration of Science this evening!
During the open reception from 5:30 – 6:30, guests will be invited to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and appetizers while perusing tables set up by local scientific-minded groups and organizations, who will be joining us to give everyone more information about their groups, science, technology, and climate change.
There will be EvolveFish and other awesome humanistic & scientific books, jewelry, stickers, and other items to purchase, as well as free literature and opportunities to sign up to learn more about the many wonderful local groups advocating for science and critical thinking.
From 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., we will hear from panelists and speakers on various topics related to scientific studies and research in the past 10 years, ideas and projections for the coming 10 years, and ways the public can get involved in promoting scientific literacy now and for decades to come!
At about 8:00 p.m., we will cut our ceremonial Darwin Day Cake and sing Happy Birthday to this inspirational advocate for scientific study and learning who lived from 1809 – 1882 and continues to inspire scientists in all fields today.
Donations are not required, but will be gratefully accepted in order to continue providing free and open events for many years to come.
Please spread the word! This event is free & open to the public, as are all events with the Humanists of Utah, a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded 25 years ago to promote joyful living, rational thinking, and responsible behavior!
Humanists of Utah is a nonprofit organization supported in large part by dues paying members. Our other major source of funds comes from generous gifts, mostly from the same dues payers who give a little more. In February 2003, chapter member Marion Craig died and left HoU a bequest of $20,000. We invested this money in an endowment fund. The interest is still helping to pay for banquets, special events, etc. When you create your personal will please consider leaving a gift to Humanists of Utah.
