MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Faulkner University leadership announced today that tickets are sold out to its Annual Benefit Dinner, Thursday October 7, according to Rebecca Burylo, a spokesperson for Faulkner University.
Mike Pence, the 48th Vice President of the United States, is the featured speaker at this year’s Annual Benefit Dinner. The event is a longstanding tradition and a red-letter event on the social calendar every year for Montgomery and the River Region.
“This year’s event will not only be an opportunity to hear a globally-known speaker who has held one of the highest offices of our nation, but it will also give us a chance to celebrate new educational opportunities for our students and exciting new initiatives at Faulkner University. We’re excited to share the ways we are partnering with the River Region including the area of health sciences,” Burylo said. “We are enthusiastically looking toward the future and celebrating the many ways our students and this institution can positively impact our community. We sincerely thank everyone who will join us that evening and for their continued support of Faulkner University.”
Proceeds from the dinner go to support the university, and primarily, student scholarships. Over the years, many students have benefited from receiving scholarships thanks to the generosity of those who attend these benefit dinners.
