2022 Ayn Rand Institute

about the gala

The 2022 Ayn Rand Institute Gala will be an opportunity to socialize with like-minded people in an elegant setting, to get an insider look at the most up-to-date happenings at the Institute, to hear from prominent Objectivist intellectuals who are working to change the culture, and to witness the impact of your donations. You’ll have a chance to contribute by bidding on exciting auction items related to Ayn Rand, the Institute, and the Objectivist community.

We invite you to join us for this year’s Gala, our annual philanthropic event, on July 2, 2022, at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. For the second year, it will take place alongside the Objectivist Summer Conference (OCON). We hope you’ll join us for both. Funds raised at our Gala go to support our mission of fostering a culture whose guiding principles are reason, rational self-interest, individualism, and laissez-faire capitalism.
