Donaldson, Begala to speak at Ivy Tech

March 18, 2008

ABC News veteran Sam Donaldson and former Bill Clinton presidential aide Paul Begala will headline the fifth annual O’Bannon Institute for Community Service at Ivy Tech-Bloomington April 24 and 25.

Donaldson will headline the Institute’s fundraising reception and dinner April 24, with proceeds going to benefit the Ivy Tech Center for Civic Engagement. Tickets for that will run $35, or $50 if you want to attend a private reception with Donaldson.

Begala, an analyst for CNN, will then host a conversation April 25, which is free and open to the public, though reservations are encouraged.

Anyone interested in purchasing tickets to the fundraiser or making reservations to Begala’s presentation can contact Gretchen Bass in the Chancellor’s Office at 330-6001 or by e-mail at
