Tonkon Torp made a sponsorship payment in support of Oregon Humanities' 2016 Think & Drink series of events. Think & Drink is designed to spark provocative conversations about big ideas. The series invites the public to think and talk together and reflects Oregon Humanities' emphasis on infusing important public conversations with critical thinking and fresh ideas. The 2016 series included nine events, from February through October. Jeff Cronn organized Tonkon's support of the series. He serves on the Oregon Humanities board of directors as Treasurer.
