Last month, the Republican Party of Palm Beach County (RPPBC) raised over $1 million at the Lincoln Day Dinner that was held at the Mar-a-Lago Club. Kevin Neal, the RPPBC Chairman, and Lincoln Day Dinner Chairman touted the event’s success as the dinner sold out with 800 attendees including former President Donald Trump (R) and Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

"This was a record-setting Lincoln Day Dinner for the Republican Party of Palm Beach County. Our Lincoln Day Committee consisted of a very motivated team of Republican Executive Committee members and we achieved unrivaled results with this event,” said RPPBC Chairman Neal. “The Grand Ballroom at the Mar-a-Lago Club was sold out with 800 attendees and the line up of speakers consisting of America First elected officials from Florida kept the energy electrified all night.”

Neal continued, “We raised over 1.1 million dollars which is the most money we have ever raised at a Lincoln Day Dinner. We were excited to see supporters in attendance who have supported our local Party for years as well as many new supporters who we hope will continue to support our local Party in the future. Palm Beach County is turning red faster than many realize and the primary objective for our fundraising at this event is to get Republicans elected in Palm Beach County and that is what we plan to do."

Speakers at the event included keynote speaker former President Donald Trump (R), Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), a video from Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Representatives Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), and Kat Cammack (R-FL).

Republican Party of Florida Chairman Evan Power, Conservative actor Kevin Sorbo, and Kevin Neal himself spoke as well.

Neal presented the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Statesman of the Year Award to President Trump and Rep. Gaetz, respectively.

Rep. Gaetz said of the event, “The Palm Beach County Republican party has done a terrific job and you have terrific leaders who have ensured that we are well positioned for success going forward and I want to thank them. This is the most remarkable Lincoln Day Dinner I have ever been to and a lot of you deserve a great deal of credit for that.”

The local REC has been under fire from within, as some members were actively trying to dissuade donors and elected officials from attending the event, but had little success in doing so.

The Lincoln Day Dinner was held on March 15.
