The Ad Council's Annual Public Service Award Dinner

The Ad Council's Annual Public Service Award Dinner is one of the premier events in the advertising, media, marketing, technology and communications industries and its an extraordinary celebration of the industry's collective efforts to make a difference in the country.

This year's event is the 65th Annual Public Service Award Dinner and it will honor IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty. Trevor Noah, comedian, political commentator and host of Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Daily Show,” will emcee the event, which will be held at the New York Hilton in New York City on December 5, 2018.

Attended by more than 1,500 prominent leaders from the media, advertising, tech and corporate communities, the Annual Dinner recognizes the industries and individuals who support the Ad Council and its public service campaigns. It is the organization’s largest fundraising event, raising a record-breaking $4.9 million last year to support the Ad Council’s programs. This year’s event will be chaired by Linda Boff, Chief Marketing Officer of GE, and Chair of the Ad Council’s Board of Directors.

The Ad Council has held its Annual Dinner, honoring corporate leaders for their contributions to public service, since 1953.
