Forward! will be a very special evening to benefit National Labor College, labor's own college. This year our Gala will take place at the Buena Vista Hotel in Orlando, Florida on the evening of Monday, February 25th, in conjunction with the AFL-CIO Executive Council meeting. Adopting the theme of "Forward!", we will highlight the excitement that has been building at NLC over the last couple years as we expand our rigorous programs and student-focused services to bring high quality accessible and affordable collegiate education to more and more men and women of the labor movement. For us, there is nothing more important than the power of education to improve the lives of those in our labor community.
This year, we are proud to honor three of the College's strongest allies and some of the labor community's most respected leaders:
Given our star-studded honorees, we promise it will be an evening made more special by our innovative format. We will begin with a gourmet cocktail buffet, giving everyone an opportunity to mingle to renew old acquaintances and make new ones. Our program will be filled with fun as we repeat "The NLC Tonight Show" featuring our honorees. We will conclude the evening with dessert and cognac at 20Seven, the glass penthouse at the hotel, looking out over the lights of downtown Disney, maybe even catching a glimpse of the Magic Kingdom fireworks.
