Legacy Gala

"Gently in manner, strongly in deed."

Dwight D. Eisenhower was known for his use of carefully crafted communications. The motto, "Gently in manner, strongly in deed," perfectly sums up the way Ike dealt with many of the issues and people that crossed his path, whether as General or President.

The 2017 Eisenhower Legacy Gala will be held on Saturday, October 14th –– Ike's birthday –– in the Eisenhower Presidential Library Courtyard in Abilene, Kansas. If you would like to reserve a seat to this special event, please contact our office at info@eisenhowerfoundation.net or 785-263-6771.
