John M. Ashbrook Memorial Dinner

The Ashbrook Memorial Dinner is the most significant public event in Ohio each year, drawing guests from throughout the state. President Ronald Reagan spoke for the first Ashbrook Memorial Dinner when he inaugurated the Ashbrook Center in 1983. Since then, we have introduced many distinguished keynote speakers, including Margaret Thatcher, Benjamin Netanyahu, George H. W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Clarence Thomas, and Barbara Bush, among others.
