Eisenhower Gala 2019

Eisenhower Presidential Museum Rededication Celebration

Please check back to see details for the 2020 Eisenhower Legacy Gala.

As we continue to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the events leading up to the end of World War II, the Eisenhower Foundation is honored to celebrate the rededication of the Eisenhower Presidential Museum. Built as a memorial to all the servicemen of World War II, "on whatever front or in whatever station they served, or in what uniform," this comprehensive renovation project marks the first time in almost half a century that the Eisenhower Museum was completely updated.

The 2019 Eisenhower Legacy Gala will be held on Saturday, October 12th in the Eisenhower Presidential Library Courtyard in Abilene, Kansas. Due to space limitations, this is an invitation-only event. If you received an invitation and would like to RSVP, please contact our office at or 785-263-6771 before September 27, 2019.
