The semi-annual largest fundraising event for Florida Republicans will happen in Orlando this year.
On Saturday, Sept. 29, Republicans from across the state will come together at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for the 2018 Victory Dinner, the Republican Party of Florida announced Monday.
“Donors and influential grassroots operatives” are expected to attend, according to the party.
It’s considered the Florida GOP’s largest fundraising event. In 2016, during the last Victory Dinner, Vice President Mike Pence spoke to the audience. Then a candidate, Pence likely had sought to rally donors in the swing state. That event was held in Tampa.
RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia said in a statement he is excited and ready to ride a “red wave” to victory.
“We look forward to our stellar candidates and their vision for a more prosperous Sunshine State rallying the heart and soul of our party,” Ingoglia said. “And we look forward to energizing our grassroots for the final stretch before heading to the polls to retain the Governor’s Mansion and add a seat in the U.S. Senate.”
In another memo released Monday, the party claims to have raised $7,671,060 since the Aug. 28 primary.
