Here are some photos from the Sorensen Institute's 2008 Gala which was held on April 25 in Northern Virginia. The event was a great success, and we want to thank everyone who helped to make this memorable evening possible.
The Virginia General Assembly has honored the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership during this, the 15th anniversary of our founding. The Assembly passed a resolution praising the work of the Sorensen Institute and hailing it as the national model for bipartisan leadership training.
Delegates, alumni, and State Advisory Board members Jennifer McClellan and John Cosgrove presented a copy of the official resolution to State Board Chairman Barbara Fried (above) at our recent 2008 Gala.
We are proud that the resolution was co-patroned by every one of our sixteen alumni now serving in the Virginia General Assembly.

FLASH: We confirmed late this afternoon that C-SPAN cameras will be joining us at the Sorensen Institute's 2008 Gala in Northern Virginia tomorrow night (Friday evening, April 25). The entire program will be taped for national broadcast at a later time.
At this year's Gala we are thrilled to honor U.S. Senator John Warner, the Honorary Chairman of our State Advisory Board, for his service to the nation and Virginia. Speakers will include Governors Holton, Robb, Baliles, Kaine, and of course Senator Warner. Our State Advisory Board Chairman Barbara Fried will moderate the evening's program.
The guest list also includes Senator Jim Webb and Governors Wilder, Allen, Gilmore, and Warner—making this the largest gathering of Virginia governors in the state's history.
We will post here in the Newsroom select photos and video excerpts from the Gala in coming days.
And as soon as we know the C-SPAN broadcast date and time, we will let you know.
