Be part of a national conversation.

Modeled after Dolley Madison’s White House gatherings of the early 1800’s, Dolley Madison Dinners brings together socially minded citizens for a lively salon-style conversation about topics of political and cultural interest. ¬†Guests will prepare for the evening by previewing a selection of newsworthy material at home — a news article, an editorial or video — provided in advance by the host. ¬†When guests arrive, they will be treated to a social atmosphere filled with good food, good company and good conversation, concluding with a Dolley-Style scoop of ice cream so that everyone returns to their homes in good cheer.
