Mark your calendar for an extraordinary evening with the Presidential Site at the Columbia Club!
The Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series supports the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site’s mission to increase participation in the American system of self-government by sharing the life stories, arts, and culture of an American President. Event proceeds help the Presidential Site share innovative civic education and outreach programs with more than 29,000 children and adults each year. The event annually welcomes 300 prestigious guests to enjoy a dinner, nationally recognized speaker, and the presentation of the Advancing American Democracy Award.
This year’s program – A Legacy of Honor & Service – will feature our keynote speaker, Brian Lamb. Join us as we celebrate our nation’s heroes – our veterans – and their sacrifice and dedication to our freedom. Past speakers include Paula Kerger, Ron Chernow, Michael Beschloss, and Richard Norton Smith.
American Democracy Award
The Advancing American Democracy Award is bestowed annually by the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site upon an individual who, in an exemplary way, advances the values of our national democracy by encouraging citizen participation in self-government and in greater civic society. The award mirrors the Presidential Site’s mission and helps to advance our greater mission.
