The Yale Club is hosting the Medal Gala next Friday, October 20th at 6:00 pm. We will be honoring Marian Wright Edelman, JD ’63, Founder of the Children’s Defense Fund,  for her life-long work as an advocate for children and disadvantaged Americans.

The Yale Club Medal recognizes members and friends of The Yale Club who have made unique contributions to their professional fields and society, while embodying the values of the Club, and furthering the mission of the University. The first Yale Club Medal was awarded to David McCullough ’55 on the occasion of our building’s Centennial Celebration in May of 2015, for his outstanding contributions to literature and to the Club.
