Partnership Dinner is an annual event that generates funding for student scholarships at Rochester University. The dinner is held annually during the spring. A special VIP reception for sponsors and the featured speaker is held in conjunction with the dinner. Unlike past years, the 51st dinner will host both an in-person dinner and a virtual option for those not able to join in person. This year we are excited to welcome back a RU alum, Jon Horst, as the featured speaker and guest emcee Chuck Gaidica, local news personality.

The 50th annual Partnership Dinner in 2021 featured Ben & Erin Napier, HGTV’s Hometown. Recent keynote speakers for the annual event have included such individuals as Col. Oliver North, Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger, Mitch Albom, Dr. Ben Carson, Scott Hamilton, Barbara Bush, Colin Powell, Elizabeth Dole, Art Linkletter, John Glenn, Robin Roberts, Dave Ramsey, Don Meyer and Judge Ken Starr.

The evening also includes the recognition of the Alumni(us) of the Year and the new RU Excellence Award, student performances, RU community member feature stories, and much more!
