Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright Will Be Honored
at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City on 21 April
The Churchill Centre and The National Churchill Museum are pleased to announce that former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will receive their 2015 Winston Churchill Leadership Award at a gala dinner at New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel on Tuesday, April 21, 2015. Announcing the Award, Churchill Centre Chairman Laurence Geller CBE noted, “Winston Churchill was a determined opponent of totalitarianism of both the left and right. It is thus especially appropriate that our two organizations honor Secretary Albright, whose own life bears eloquent witness to the impact of these twin evils in our time, for her lifetime of service to America and the world.” National Churchill Museum Chairman Jean-Paul Montupet added, “We are particularly pleased that legendary broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw and the Rt. Hon. David Miliband, the distinguished former British Foreign Secretary and current President of the International Rescue Committee, will join us for this gala evening.”
Secretary Albright has announced, “I am thrilled to receive the 2015 Churchill Leadership Award. As a child of World War II in London, I am truly honored to be associated with one of the world’s most important and respected leaders.”
The Churchill Leadership Award is presented to distinguished figures from the public or private sectors. Previous recipients have included Margaret Thatcher, James Baker, David Cameron, J.W. Marriott, Jr., and Frederic Malek. Proceeds from the 2015 dinner will support the educational activities and other programs of The Churchill Centre and The National Churchill Museum.
Individual dinner tickets will be priced at $500 (regular seating) and $1,000 (premium seating) with tables of ten at $5,000 and $10,000. A limited number of premium sponsorships, with acknowledgement in the program and other recognition, will be offered at levels of $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000.
Event Co-Chairs are Laurence Geller CBE, Jean-Paul Montupet and Leo Hindery, Managing Partner of InterMedia Advisors. Honorary Chairs include Churchill’s granddaughter the Hon. Edwina Sandys, his great-grandson Randolph Churchill and historian Sir David Cannadine.
