A Presidential Gold Plate Leadership Dinner was held May 10, 2012, to mark the completion of the Authentically Augustana: A Call to Action campaign and celebrate the achievement of $152 million raised for 152 years of excellence in education at Augustana College.

Augustana's Celebration Gospel Choir performed under the direction of Dr. Keith Hampton. Speakers included Vice President of Advancement Lynn Jackson, Board of Trustees Chair Kim Brunner, and President Steve Bahls. The event emcee was Anne Bergren, director of donor relations and stewardship . Attendees also viewed the campaign thank you video, "Because of You."

More than 150 people attended the event in Wallenberg Hall in Denkmann Memorial Hall. This was the first time dinner has been served in Wallenberg Hall.
