Each year since 1903, The Commonwealth Club has held a gala dinner celebrating its anniversary, and since 1988 has presented its Distinguished Citizen Award to one or more individuals, recognizing their noteworthy contributions to local and global society.

This year’s theme is “Transformative Leadership” – honoring the individuals who have made a significant impact on our region by creating business and economic opportunities, or through their philanthropy and fundraising dedication have improved our fabric of social and cultural organizations.

The Annual Dinner is The Club’s most significant annual social and fundraising event, providing resources to support the nonprofit mission of the nation’s largest and oldest public forum, throughout the year. Please join us at this special event!
