The Founders' Dinner has its roots in a celebration created over a half a century ago to honor the men and women who worked to build Loyola University Chicago into a thriving place of higher learning. This annual event highlights the achievements of alumni who have honored their alma mater through their community, corporate, or philanthropic leadership.
The dinner is held on campus in a beautifully transformed Joseph J. Gentile Center. Guests are treated to an evening of entertainment that has included guest emcees, the always-popular Founders' Dinner Chorus, and a live orchestra that plays throughout the evening. The dinner benefits Loyola's Presidential Scholarships, a program that awards four-year scholarships to academically qualified students.
