The University of Tennessee, KnoxvilleThe Howard H. Baker, Jr. Center for Public Policy

As you may know we launched the Baker Distinguished Lecture Series (BDLS) last fall with an appearance by Sen. George Mitchell in the Fall and one by Sec. of Education, Arne Duncan, in the Spring 2013.  We are now launching the BDLS Patron program to help support this and future events so that we may keep them free and open to the public.  Our honored guest for Fall 2013 is Tom Brokaw.

YOU can  help support  the BDLS by becoming a BDLS Patron.  Donate $250 (fully tax deductible)  and you will receive a reserved seat at each lecture (Fall 2013 and Spring 2014), a DVD of each talk and your name listed in each program. You can also purchase a ticket for our fund-raising luncheon, before the Nov. 13 lecture for half-price or only $75. See this  BDLS Patron Information for complete information.

We also have individual tickets to the Nov. 13 luncheon for $150/person or a table for 7 for $1,000.  We also welcome Corporate Sponsors as well and information on this is available here  BDLS Sponsorship Information 13.14  We are pleased to have as sponsors for the BDLS 2013-14:  Jupiter Entertainment, Knoxville News Sentinel, WBIR-TV 10, and WUOT 91.9 and we welcome others!
