The Acton Institute’s 2021 Annual Dinner will be held on Wednesday, November 17 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Along with celebrating our work to promote a free and virtuous society, this year’s annual dinner will be extra special.

We ask you to join us to celebrate Acton’s co-founders as

Rev. Robert A. Sirico

Surrounded by friends and supporters of the Institute, the evening will highlight Rev. Sirico’s many accomplishments and his fruitful career.
 
Additionally, in his last annual dinner as Acton president, Sirico will give a very special address as our keynote speaker for the evening.
