The Man & The Musical: Hundreds attend historical evening honoring Founding Father Alexander Hamilton


The Sandra Day O’Connor Institute honored Founding Father Alexander Hamilton at its Annual History Dinner in November at The Phoenician.

Dinner With Hamilton – The Man and The Musical featured acclaimed author and historian Ron Chernow.

The sold-out evening was attended by 800 guests in support of the O’Connor Institute’s educational programs, according to a press release. SRP and the White House Design Studio magically transformed the ballroom into colonial Philadelphia, with the menu and music of the evening also paying tribute to the historic era.

Mr. Chernow artfully educated and entertained the crowd with his extensive knowledge of Alexander Hamilton and our nation’s founding. In addition to his remarks, the audience delighted in a performance from the hit Broadway musical --- Hamilton --- with permission from Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Senator Jon Kyl conducted the traditional fireside chat with Mr. Chernow, which further illuminated the remarkable life of Alexander Hamilton. Jacquie Dorrance, Penny Gunning, Erin Gogolak and Carrie Hulburd co-chaired the memorable evening.
