Bold Gold Foundation Announces VIP Speakers for 8th Annual Event

The Bold Gold Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Bold Gold Media Group that supports educational programs to help students prepare for careers in broadcast journalism, announces that this year’s 8th Annual Event and Dinner on October 21 at the Keystone Grand Ballroom at Mohegan Pennsylvania in Wilkes-Barre will feature General David Petraeus and Lord Andrew Roberts as keynote speakers. This year’s event is being done in partnership with the Churchill Society of Pennsylvania and will pay tribute to the United States Armed Forces and the theme will follow the title of Petraeus’ and Roberts’ forthcoming book, Conflict: The Evolution of Warfare from 1945 to Ukraine (Harper 2023). Bold Gold president Vince Benedetto says, “This year will be a most extraordinary event as we have the honor of hosting two remarkable leaders, General David Petraeus and Lord Andrew Roberts. General Petraeus is, of course, one of the all-time great U.S. military commanders and strategists, and Andrew Roberts is one of the greatest living historians and scholars. This evening will be historic, educational and prescient. Having these two giants together on the same stage will be a night to remember.” The Bold Gold Foundation is also be honoring Northeast Pennsylvania business leader, James Shook, of Lake Region IGA, with The Atlas Award for Citizenship, an honor that is bestowed on individuals who, through their hard work and bold actions, show what is possible to achieve in a free society, and who exhibit extraordinary dedication to the highest ideals of character, community service, entrepreneurialism, patriotism, leadership, and virtue. A limited number of complimentary tickets are available for students interested in a career in broadcast media, as well as for military members and first responders.
