Sept. 9, 2013—The University of Denver's 16th Annual Korbel Dinner to support scholarships, faculty research and programs is a sold out event. More than 1,100 guests are expected to attend tonight's event which will feature two-term former President George W. Bush as its special guest and keynote speaker. This fundraising event is closed to members of the media.
The annual Korbel Dinner honors Josef Korbel, the first dean and founder of the Josef Korbel School, and is the School's principal fundraising event. The funds raised benefit the School's programs, scholarships and centers, which are designed to serve the School's students and the community at large. Each year, the dinner's program includes an internationally prominent keynote speaker and local honorees who have made a global impact.
