Message from our Chairman

Dear friends,

The Ellis Island Medals of Honor ceremony is only 4 short months away and preparations are in high gear. We are reviewing nominations and making sure we pick the best of the best out of the hundreds of nominations we’ve received this year. We have already received nominations for dozens of amazing people. Of course, we can’t release any names until we have made our final selections, but I assure you, this year we have several surprise guests and some incredible honorees. You will be surprised, and our roster of 2018 Medalists will find themselves in very impressive company.

The final list will be announced sometime in mid-February. To get the most up-to-date information, please follow us at @EIHonors on Twitter and receive updates on our daily feed and be one of the first to learn when the list is released.

So, save the date! May 12, 2018 will be the a memorable night for 100 incredible Americans who’s contributions to our country are worthy of celebration. I hope to see you there.
