The Poynter Institute’s Bowtie Ball
November 12 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm$225 – $350
The Bowtie Ball is Poynter’s largest annual celebration of journalistic excellence that recognizes the contributions of the brightest and liveliest minds in the industry to democracies worldwide.
It is also Poynter’s most significant fundraising event of the year where hundreds of guests — including media executives, business leaders, philanthropists, public servants and community members — are immersed in an elegant evening of impactful storytelling.
You’re invited to attend Poynter’s Bowtie Ball on Saturday, Nov. 12, at Tampa Marriott Water Street. Together, we’ll celebrate the free press and honor the distinguished careers of legendary journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein whose dogged reporting of the 1972 Watergate break-in changed the course of American history and fortified journalism’s role in democracy.
The pair’s contributions will be elevated throughout the evening; Carl Bernstein will attend the event in person and reflect upon his investigative reporting during an interview on stage.
Toast the First Amendment and join our call to uplift ethical, independent reporting. Proceeds from your ticket help Poynter improve, strengthen and sustain quality journalism in diverse newsrooms around the world.
