 FEATURE: CEI Celebrates Liberty & James Bond at Annual Gala


CEI would like to thank everyone who helped make the 2013 Annual Dinner a resounding success. For the first time, the event raised over $1 million! Those who attended the dinner enjoyed rousing speeches by Sen. Rand Paul, Prof. Deirdre McCloskey, CEI President Lawson Bader and CEI Founder Fred L. Smith. Those who couldn't attend can still watch the featured videos in the programme: a short video tribute to Fred Smith and a James Bond parody starring Bader and Smith. Also, take a look at our photo galleries from the night here and here.
