The May Dinner is the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation’s annual black-tie gala that celebrates the life and legacy of President Kennedy. This year, the gala again honored his legacy with the presentation of the 2019 Profile in Courage Award to The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. As a special highlight, this year’s May Dinner also commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and President Kennedy’s call to the nation to challenge the impossible, cross a new frontier, and land on the moon.
The Foundation is pleased to announce that this year’s May Dinner raised $2.75 million in unrestricted funds to provide crucial financial support to the JFK Library’s programming, which serves hundreds of thousands of adults and children annually. Through free educational experiences, the Kennedy Library Forums series, the JFK Library's digital archives, and arts and cultural programming, the Kennedy Library perpetuates President Kennedy's legacy to new and growing audiences each year.
Sponsorship levels for the May Dinner range from $5,000 to $250,000. To support to the gala, please contact Lindsey Havansek at Lindsey.Havansek@JFKLFoundation.org.
