Host a Dinner

Hosting a 100 Dinners gathering is a wonderful opportunity for you to act as an ambassador for UBC and celebrate alumni UBC 100 alongside other alumni in your area. Through this shared once-in-a-century experience (quite literally), you will have the unique opportunity to strengthen old relationships and build new connections. To top it off, as a host, you will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a pair of WestJet plane tickets to anywhere that WestJet flies!

You are welcome to host either a private or a public dinner:

  • Private dinner: You know your guests personally and know how to contact them..
  • Public dinner: You determine the invitation criteria and alumni UBC helps you promote your dinner to potential dinner guests in your region.

You can host your dinner just about anywhere: at a restaurant, in a park, or even at your home!

Lazy Gourmet is providing a choice of 10% off or free delivery for catered 100 Dinners events in the Vancouver region. A six-person minimum applies to all orders. Please contact Shannon at to inquire about menu options.

Although alumni UBC cannot provide hosts with financial assistance for the 100 Dinners initiative, we are committed to supporting your hosting experience in a number of ways. We can assist by:

  • Helping you determine suitable invitation criteria for public dinners, factoring in the size of the alumni community where you live.
  • Promoting your public dinner to UBC alumni in your respective geographical region.
  • Providing you with access to an online registration system for your public dinner so you can easily set up a registration form, capture RSVPs, and communicate with your guests.
  • Providing event supplies, including alumni UBC 100 promotional materials to brand your dinner, and an icebreaker activity for you and your guests.

Please note: In order to ensure that alumni UBC can provide this support, we require that the Host Application Form be completed a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the date of a public dinner, and a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the date of a private dinner.
