The dinner will cost $45 and will include a selection of three entrees (served buffet style), desert and two complimentary glasses of wine or beer. The featured speaker will be Jennifer Loeb who not too long ago climbed Mt. Everest. She lives and works in the Cedar Rapids area and is the first woman from Iowa to climb Mt. Everest. More about Jen:

Jen Loeb was born and raised on a small family farm in Jesup, IA. She graduated from Jesup high school and later from Wartburg College with a degree in biology. Jen started climbing in 2010. On May 19, 2016 she became the first woman from Iowa to summit Mount Everest. Jen’s trying to become the first woman from Iowa to complete the “7 Summits” which is when you climb the highest peak in every continent. She currently has 6 of the 7 done…the only one left is Vinson Massif in Antartica. As of right now there are only 22 women from the USA that have completed the 7 summits.
