Location: Ballroom

Silver Owls Fall HootHedrick Smith, a prize winning journalist, author, and documentarian will headline the Silver Owls Fall Hoot at 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26 in the National Press Club's Ballroom.

The Hoot is open to all Press Club members and their guests. Tickets are $35, which includes the club's superb three-course dinner. The meal is preceded by a cash bar. Reservations can be made below.

Smith, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting for The New York Times, and two Emmy Awards for television documentaries, will talk about his belief that the country is in peril because of a broken political system. He contends that unlimited money flooding into political campaigns, gerrymandering of federal and state political districts, and the erosion of voting rights, particularly among minorities, are the major causes of this dilemma.

Silver Owls are those who have been members of the Press Club for 25 years or longer. Golden Owls are those who have been members 50 years or more. And Platinum Owls have roosted at the Club for 60 years or longer. The Owls hold two events a year, a Spring Hoot and a Fall Hoot.

If you are a new Silver, Gold or Platinum Owl and you attend the Hoot, you will be introduced and presented with a framed certificate attesting to your new honored status in the National Press Club. If you are unable to attend, please notify Joann Booze at the Club - - and she will mail you the certificate.
