Sutherland Institute announces keynote and entertainment for annual gala

Sutherland Institute is pleased to announce that Arthur Brooks will keynote its annual gala.

Brooks, in his final year as American Enterprise Institute president, will be joined that evening by singer/songwriter Loren Allred, the voice behind the hit song “Never Enough” from the motion picture The Greatest Showman.

Please join us on Friday, Oct. 12, at the Grand America Hotel as we present the Sutherland New Birth of Freedom award to three Americans whose lives serve to preserve and promote freedom. Recipients for 2018 are Maj. Gen. Jefferson S. Burton, adjutant general of the Utah National Guard; Tracie Sharp, president and CEO of the State Policy Network; and Greg Miller, NBA Governor, Board of Directors, Larry H. Miller Group of Companies.    

“In the rich tradition of the Sutherland Annual Gala, we look forward to gathering and celebrating three great honorees,” said Rick Larsen, Sutherland CEO. “The 2018 New Birth of Freedom recipients are deserving, and each award presentation will be awe-inspiring. We are grateful to supportive sponsors, and too many leaders, presenters and elected officials to name, for making this event possible. Last but certainly not least, thank you to Arthur Brooks for making time to join his many friends and admirers in Utah in his final year at AEI. We look forward to this memorable evening.”  

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to share AEI’s message with friends gathered in Utah next month to celebrate the Sutherland Institute’s annual gala,” Brooks said.

Attendees will be presented with Sutherland Institute’s newest publication, The Sun Is Still Rising: Politics Has Failed But America Will Not, written by nationally renowned pollster Scott Rasmussen, who will also be in attendance and will share brief remarks regarding societal trends and opinions going into the November midterms and beyond.
