Ron DeSantis‘ campaign has the weekend planned out for financial supporters of the former congressman’s bid for the Governor’s Mansion.
Before the who’s who of the Republican Party of Florida meet in Orlando for a hype dinner on Saturday night, the Republican nominee’s finance team will be welcoming guests this afternoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for the “7th Inning Stretch” All-Stars Finance Retreat this weekend.
From 6 to 7 p.m. Friday, the financiers will enjoy cocktails at the resort’s Napa Room. Afterward, during dinner at the California Grill, they’ll hear about DeSantis’ campaign strategies, including polling and messaging.
Tee times begin at 6:54 a.m. on Saturday. DeSantis backers can put their golf skills to the test at Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, which has hosted the PGA Tour. All golfers will have the opportunity to play against DeSantis.
Alternatively, All-Stars can attend Disney World with a VIP pass, allowing them to skip lines.
The crescendo of the weekend: The Republican Victory Dinner at the Grand Floridian Resort, when VIPs can grab a photo with DeSantis before wining and dining into the home stretch of the election. The evening reception is considered the largest fundraising event for the party.
Earlier this month, RPOF claimed to have raised more than $7.5 million since the Aug. 28 primary.
DeSantis has raised through his campaign account more than $1 million since the primary, leaving him with nearly $2.4 million on hand, according to the latest campaign finance reports. Friends of Ron DeSantis, the nominee’s PAC, has raised almost $3.9 million since the same date.
