Salvation Army Events
News and Political Analyst Cokie Roberts will deliver the keynote address on Thursday, Nov. 11 at the Salvation Army’s Annual Luncheon. The gala event takes place at the Hilton Americas Hotel, beginning at 11:30 a.m.
With Election Day just one week prior to the luncheon, her observations will be particularly timely and intriguing. Roberts is the winner of three Emmys, as well as an inductee in the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame. She is considered one of the 50 greatest women in the history of broadcasting by the American Women in Radio and Television. Her 40-plus years in the world of media and current affairs promise an engaging and entertaining analysis of the dynamic political landscape in America.
Chairing the annual luncheon are Maria and Neil Bush. Sponsor tables range from $3,000 to $25,000, and individual tickets are $150. To book your table or to purchase individual tickets, call 832-201-8026.
