Sorensen Event at Norfolk's Chrysler Museum

Monday, October 2, 2017

In today's bitter partisan environment, the Sorensen Institute's vision is more important than ever: trust, civility and respect in politics. Join us on Oct. 12 for an evening of drinks, discussion and networking with area political junkies to support the Sorensen Institute.


Across the Aisle: A Political Fundraiser Like No Other!
Thursday, 10/12/17 · 6–8 p.m.
Perry Glass Studio @ the Chrysler Museum of Art
745 Duke Street, Norfolk, VA 23519

This unique event brings together area civic leaders from all political parties and persuasions—elected officials and private citizens—for an evening of drinks, discussion and networking. CNU’s Rachel Bitecofer, Director of the Survey Research Lab at the Wason Center for Public Policy, will answer the age-old political question, “Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?” Plus a live demonstration by the Chrysler Museum's talented glass artists.

The Glass Studio is a smaller venue with a limited capacity, so don't wait to register!
