The Pattison Leader Ball brings together young, civically minded and politically motivated professionals, for an evening of networking, dancing and discussion over the future of Pennsylvania politics and policy. While the current leaders of Pennsylvania meet to discuss the future of Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Society Dinner in New York City, the Pattison Leader Ball will provide a venue for the future leaders of Pennsylvania to engage in a similar discussion in Pennsylvania.
The Pattison Leader Ball is named after Governor Robert E. Pattison and Governor George M. Leader,the two youngest governors in Pennsylvania’s history. At young ages, Governors Pattison and Leader dramatically changed the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through policy and action. We honor the two Governors through this ball to inspire the young, civically engaged professionals to reach for the torchof leadership and ensure that their voices are heard.
