2015 Texas State Dinner


The Congressional Award Foundation is hosting a dinner on September 29, 2015, to honor  Senator Phil Gramm and Ambassador Ron Kirk for their leadership in promoting civic engagement and volunteerism. We hope that you will show your Texas pride by supporting your fellow Texans and joining us for this special evening.

Each year Congress presents special awards to individuals who have worked to emphasize and reinforce the importance of citizenship and public service for the next generation. These recipients have truly forged ahead in expanding opportunities for young Americans and setting exceptional examples for which youth can aspire. Previous recipients of this recognition include President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter, Senator Bob Dole, Secretary Colin Powell, Senator Robert Byrd and Senator David Pryor.

The dinner will be held at the Reserve Officers Association (ROA) in Washington, DC. A reception will begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by a dinner at 7:00 p.m. This event will also serve as an opportunity to increase awareness of the Congressional Award program and raise the necessary funding to recognize youth from across the country for public service.

You may RSVP for the event, learn more about levels of sponsorship, and request more information by using the Response Form.
