On the evening of March 1, AMA Lincoln (amalincoln.org) hosted The Legacy Gala to celebrate its 40th year of serving marketers in the Lincoln community.

The event, held at the Jasmine Room within the Grand Manse Building, drew around 100 people in the marketing and advertising industry, many of whom supported the AMA Lincoln chapter as volunteers or board members.

Past leaders were formally recognized during a presentation held over dinner and Dorothy B. Clark, who founded the chapter in 1983-84, was honored posthumously through a presentation and remarks from those who worked with her.

The Gala also included a silent auction of donated items and all proceeds from the event benefited AMA Lincoln’s scholarship and programming efforts.

“It’s humbling to think back on AMA Lincoln’s history — we’ve been nationally recognized many times in the past,” says current President of AMA Lincoln, Mandy Peterson. “This night was really about honoring that legacy. It was empowering and encouraging, but I’m even more excited about what our future has in store.”
