Rudy Giuliani to Speak at Faulkner’s Annual Benefit Dinner
March 8, 2016
Faulkner University announced that Rudy Giuliani would be the speaker at Faulkner’s Annual Benefit Dinner during a press conference held Tuesday. President Mike Williams revealed the news. “Rudy Giuliani is a giant in the landscape of American politics, and we are extremely excited to have him here in Montgomery,” Williams said. “We are confident that those who attend the benefit dinner will hear an incredibly memorable speech from Mr. Giuliani.”
Faulkner University’s Annual Benefit Dinner is a longstanding tradition and a red-letter event on the social calendar every year for Montgomery and the River Region. This year’s dinner will be hosted at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center on October 6. Faulkner has brought renowned politicians, journalists, athletes, coaches, comedians and astronauts to speak in Montgomery over the years.
Proceeds from the dinner go to support the university, and student scholarships in particular.
“The Annual Benefit Dinner is our biggest event each year. We love being able to share these great speakers with the River Region, but more than that, we are so excited about the scholarship opportunities this dinner provides for our students,” Williams said. “The contributions made by the people who attend our benefit dinner are changing the lives of students at Faulkner University.”
Celebrated by many as “Mayor of the World,” Rudy Giuliani provides a resolute voice in tackling the toughest domestic and international issues of our time—from long-standing global conflicts to terrorism and the new reality of cyber warfare to the future of health care reform and immigration to political leadership and insights on future elections. Acclaimed as one of the most effective chief executives in modern American history for his leadership and bravery during 9-11, Giuliani was named TIME magazine’s Person of the Year, was given an honorary knighthood by the Queen of England and was awarded the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award.
Never one to shy away from a battle, Giuliani almost single-handedly took on organized and white-collar crime in New York with a remarkable record of 4,000 convictions—one that very few attorneys can match. Ushering in a new era of fiscal responsibility and broad-based growth, he turned an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multibillion-dollar surplus and added a record 450,000 new private sector jobs. Recognized by Consulting magazine as “Consultant of the Year,” Giuliani Partners is a leader in strategic consulting and emergency preparedness.
