Update to Lincoln Day Dinner
March 19th, 2017
Dear Fellow Republicans,
We are a week out from our main fundraising event, the Lincoln Day Dinner, this Saturday March 25th. It is going to be a fun night, and tickets are going fast. You can purchase tickets to the event at www.dcgop.org. The event will kick off with cocktails and our silent auction, as well as our VIP reception with the Keynote Speaker. Followed by dinner, dessert, the live auction, and our keynote presentation.
We do have one sad note……Our original keynote speaker Mandy Connell, will be unable to appear, due to recent passing of her father. We have expressed our deepest sympathies to her and her family at this sad time.
We have been able to secure a substitute keynote speaker, that we think will be just as exciting and fun. He is a well know public speaker and author, Dr. Lloyd Lewan. Dr. Lewan is a veteran U.S. Marine Corps officer and former Chairman of the Board of Lewan & Associates, one of the largest office equipment dealerships in the nation. Dr. Lewan was also past Chairman of the Board of Semester at Sea, an international ship board study program for college students where he travelled the world meeting with heads of state and educating young people. He has served the community, often in a chairman capacity, working with organizations as far reaching as assisting at-risk youth and burn victims to economic development and international trade, and for decades, Dr. Lewan has donned the red and white as the face of Santa Claus at Children’s Hospital bringing hope and cheer to children with a terminal illness. A frequent keynote speaker known for his good humor and deep insights, Dr. Lewan has written several books on leadership and considers his life motto “Semper Fidelis” - always faithful.
We are very excited that he was able to step in for Mandy Connell, and we are looking forward to his presentation to our annual gathering.
Again Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.dcgop.org, and are going fast.
As always if you have an item or service you would like to donate to the silent or live auction please contact Alexandra Harden, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Officers of the DCGOP
