Eisenhower Award Celebration

The BENS Eisenhower Award honors the contributions of public servants and private citizens who safeguard our freedom as well as the balance, as President Eisenhower said in his prophetic farewell address over five decades ago, “between the actions of the moment and the national welfare of the future.” Like the nation’s 34th president, “we want democracy to survive for all generations to come.”  Since it was first presented to Tom Watson, Jr. (Chairman & CEO of IBM) and Peter Grace (President & CEO of W.R. Grace & Company) in 1986, the BENS Eisenhower Award has been presented to more than 70 additional most deserving, patriotic Americans from the business community, military and public sector.  

Most recently in April 2021, we were pleased to recognize Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; General Gustave Perna, USA, Chief Operating Officer of Operation Warp Speed; and Alex Gorsky, Chairman & CEO of Johnson & Johnson. The fall awards gala event will be held in New York City on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm ET. Click below for registration information.
