Actor Bradley Cooper to Headline 39th Annual PA Chamber Dinner

We are thrilled to announce the details of the 39th Annual PA Chamber Dinner, which is shaping up to be the can’t-miss event of the year! On Monday, October 2, we will host a “Celebration of Pennsylvania” at the Hershey Lodge with none other than Hollywood star Bradley Cooper headlining the event.

Cooper, a Pennsylvania native, is a nine-time Oscar nominee and an accomplished actor, director, writer, and producer. He is globally renowned for his work in critically acclaimed films such as American Sniper, American Hustle, and Silver Linings Playbook. In 2018, Cooper directed, produced, and starred in the musical drama, A Star is Born, which received eight Oscar nominations at the 91st Academy Awards.

This year’s PA Chamber Dinner will feature a fireside chat with Cooper discussing his Pennsylvania ties, his remarkable film career, and his love for Pennsylvania sports teams. Cooper will also share lessons in leadership and reflect on how we can work together to elevate Pennsylvania on the global stage.

In addition to our exciting conversation with Cooper, we are proud to announce this year’s dinner will also feature a musical performance by multi-platinum recording artist and Pennsylvania native Gabby Barrett. Following her breakout performance on American Idol, Barrett has become one of the fastest-rising stars in country music, charting several No. 1 hits and collecting several major accolades.

We can’t wait to welcome our members to this once-in-a-lifetime event, which is sure to be an unforgettable experience. More information will soon be available on the event’s official website,

Thank you for being part of the PA Chamber, and we look forward to seeing you in October!
