Kennedy-King Dinner 2012


The 19th Annual Kennedy-King Dinner

Honoring the Legacies of Sen. Robert Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King and Bringing Democrats together from all around Northern Virginia and the Commonwealth

  • Featuring Honorary Chair of the Dinner, Congressman Jim Moran 
  • Recognition of Senator Jim Webb at our Reception 
  • The Dinner Honors Former Governor Linwood Holton for His Contributions to Civil Rights 
  • Remarks by Judge Anne Holton and State Party Chairman Brian Moran

“Some men see things as they are and ask why? I see things that never were and ask why not?” Robert Kennedy’s words, spoken in hope, mirror those spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Lincoln Memorial when he shared his dream with the world in 1963.

The annual Virginia Kennedy-King dinner, sponsored by the Eighth Congressional District Democratic Committee, celebrates Robert Kennedy’s and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision. It is an event to honor those Virginians who strive to make the hopes and dreams of these two great leaders a reality. It is a time to reflect on how both of these men continue to touch our lives as Democrats and live in our hearts as Virginians. The monies raised by the event go towards our effort to support Virginia’s Democrats.
