Highlights were shown of presidential candidates appearing at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation Memorial Dinner over the years: Vice President Al Gore (D) and Governor George W. Bush (R-TX) in 2000; Senator John McCain (R-AZ) in 2005; Senators Barack Obama (D-IL) and John McCain (R-AZ) in 2008; and former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) and President Obama in 2012.

The Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City is an annual white-tie fundraiser for Catholic charities supporting underprivileged children at which presidential candidates traditionally appear. It is a light-hearted joint appearance for presidential candidates where they joked about themselves, their opponents, and the campaign. Founded in 1946 by Francis Cardinal Spellman, the Foundation honors the memory of Alfred E. Smith who died in in 1944. Al Smith was a four-time governor of the state of New York and former presidential candidate. close
