This weekend’s Tea Party convention speech given by Sarah Palin isn’t the only speech where ticket prices are high. Palin is coming to Orlando in March to be the keynote speaker at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner, a fundraising event for the Orange County Republican Party.
The local party chairman says that local fundraising is down and he’s hoping Palin will “give it a jolt.” He expects 1,500 to 3,00 people to attend.
‘We’re just incredibly lucky,” said party Chairman Lew Oliver. “She’s a real rock star for Republicans.”
The March 12 event, which typically carries a $150 ticket price, will be kicked up to $250, thanks to Palin’s star power.
Oliver said that a party committeeman — he would not say who — had a “serendipitous personal connection” with the former Alaska governor and her schedule allowed her to make the date.
The ticket order website lists the ticket prices which range from $250-$5,000. It will cost those who want their picture taken with Palin $1,000.
