President’s Party with a Purpose

Join Academy President Lauri Wright, PhD, RDN, LDN, FAND, for the President’s Party with a Purpose. Taking place in the artfully decorated lobby of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, located a short walking distance from the Colorado Convention Center, the President’s Party with a Purpose is sure to be a fun evening and a great way to unwind while also supporting the Foundation.

Join hundreds of your peers for an evening of music, dancing and mingling. The registration cost includes dessert stations, specialty cocktails and mocktails. The dress code is business casual or, if you choose, get into the Colorado spirit and wear your favorite “mountain chic” pieces: floral print dresses, suede jackets, cowboy boots and hats and bolo ties.

This party has a purpose: Empowering the future of your profession!

All proceeds from the event benefit the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation — the only public charity dedicated exclusively to our profession, supporting nutrition and dietetics.

Purchase tickets via the FNCE® Registration form or, if you’ve already registered, you can purchase a ticket by going into your FNCE® registration dashboard and selecting the event.
