RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - All eight living former Virginia governors and Gov. Bob McDonnell are being celebrated at an event at the University of Virginia.

 

The Charlottesville school's Sorensen Institute is set to hold its 11th annual fundraising gala on Tuesday night in Richmond.

 

Officials say Linwood Holton, Chuck Robb, Jerry Baliles, Doug Wilder, George Allen, Jim Gilmore, Mark Warner, Tim Kaine, and McDonnell will all speak to the crowd of about 350 Virginia political leaders and their guests.

 

The 19-year-old institute was founded to identify and train emerging political and community leaders in Virginia. To date, about two dozen institute alumni have been elected to the Virginia General Assembly, and more than 100 have been elected to local office.
