The Johnson County Republican Central Committee is now reserving ten-place tables for the Republican Party of Iowa’s Annual Lincoln Dinner scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2015 with doors opening at 4:30 PM at The Iowa Events Center, 833 Fifth Street, Des Moines.
The steak dinner will feature nine confirmed speakers each of whom is an announced or potential 2016 Republican Party presidential candidate. Those currently, as of April 8, confirmed speakers for the event include former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, businessman Donald Trump and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Four other announced or potential 2016 Republican Party presidential candidates who have been invited, but have yet to accept are New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Following the dinner, arrangements have been made to allow the speakers to meet with attendees.
Individual tickets are $100 each and available directly from The Republican Party of Iowa. The Johnson County Republican Central Committee is now reserving ten-place tables at $750 each reducing the individual ticket price to $75 and guaranteeing a reserved place at a table. Reserved tables will be those placed closest to the speaker’s podium.
Because of the roster of speakers, the proximity to the 2016 Presidential Election and the state-wide demand by county central committees to reserve tables, it is imperative that those wishing to attend as a group from Johnson County reserve their place no later than Monday, May 4, when The Johnson County Republican Central Committee will submit its reservation for tables to The Republican Party of Iowa.
To reserve a place for this event contact Mike Cavanaugh, Deputy-Vice Chairman, Johnson County Republican Central Committee at email@example.com . He is keeping the reservation list. Please submit your name and the number of places that you wish to reserve. Your email date and time stamp determines your place on the list and assignment to a table. Upon receipt of your email he will reply back to confirm your reservation and place on the list. Grouping reservations by tens will allow us to reserve the correct number of tables and work to place/ back-fill a table with adjacent counties to accommodate everyone. Invoicing and payment for the event will be determined by The Johnson County Republican Central Committee Treasurer.
