In 2003, Speaker John A. Boehner, the Honorable Anthony A. Williams and the late Senator Ted Kennedy joined together to headline the first annual fall fundraiser benefiting the children of the Consortium of Catholic Academies.
Until his retirement from the Senate in 2012, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman also lent his support as host. Together these individuals worked tirelessly making the dinner the single greatest source of funding for the Consortium's critical needs like; tuition assistance, building maintenance and updated curriculum materials.
Today, as preparations get under way to mark 10th anniversary of this important event, the Consortium is honored the announce a new host, Senator Dianne Feinstein, who has graciously offered to join Speaker Boehner and the former Mayor Williams.
The newly named Boehner Feinstein Williams Dinner will be held on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013.
We are blessed for everything our hosts do the in the name of our students and our schools.
Speaker Boehner’s commitment to the Consortium extends well beyond the night of the dinner. A regular visitor to classrooms, the Speaker has invited students to be his guests at the State of the Union address and other important Capitol Hill events. He also attends an annual event honoring Consortium teachers and staff each spring.
In addition to our hosts, we are grateful for the generous support of our sponsors who make this event not only possible, but successful. We are proud to acknowledge the 2012 dinner sponsors below.
