The guest list for the $1,000 per plate private dinner at the Ali Center includes the boxing legend’s longtime trainer, Angelo Dundee, musician John Mellencamp and Congressman John Yarmuth.
A weeklong series of public birthday events begins Sunday at the Ali Center.
They include film screenings and a Smithsonian exhibition focusing on people of dual African-American and Native American ancestries.
A center spokeswoman says Ali will attend tomorrow’s gala but has not been confirmed for any of the public events.
Ali’s 70th birthday is Tuesday.
