American Spectator’s Rover L. Bartley Gala
Time: 6:30 PM
Host: The American Spectator Foundation – Capital Hilton, Washington D.C.
The American Spectator Foundation’s Robert L. Bartley Gala dinner is one of the highlights
of the Washington political scene each year and is attended by over 400 people, including many national journalists, other representatives of the Washington press corps, and a great cross section of true conservatives. The Bartley dinner plays an important role in raising critical funds for The American Spectator’s operations. Tax-deductible contributions raised from the dinner not only support the production and editing of the magazine and its website, but also support our programs to train young conservative journalists and activists. Held every year since the early 1980s, recent keynote speakers have included best-selling author Tom Wolfe, Governor Mitt Romney, Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Samuel Alito and the Honorable Paul Ryan. Each year at the dinner, a distinguished journalist is presented with the Barbara Olson Award for Excellence in Journalism. Last year’s award went to Spectator contributor, Mr. M. Stanton Evans. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard won in 2010; The Wall Street Journal’s Dan Henninger in 2009; the late Bob Novak won in 2008; and Dr. Charles Krauthammer received the award in 2007.
