The inaugural Foundation Gala DinnerĀ is scheduled for Jan. 18, 2011, in the Thornton Room of the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.

In addition to raising money for the Foundation, the event will highlight the recipients of the Wheat Leader of the Year award, the Wheat Advocate awards and the Friend of Wheat awards.

The evening will also include a VIP reception prior to the main event for corporate sponsors and major donors with the hope that some of the Congressional award recipients will be in attendance.

More about the dinner will be available here in mid-2010.
