Aloha Friends and Neighbors:
Today we extend an exciting invitation for you to join us at a brand new event where Hawaii's growing conservative movement will feel right at home. Come celebrate President Ronald Reagan’s legacy on his 103rd birthday for an evening you'll never forget.
Please join your fellow Republicans and conservatives at HIRA's inaugural Ronald Reagan Freedom and Liberty Dinner on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at the Pearl Country Club.
Affordably priced at just $75.00, event tickets are on sale NOW.
Last week, we asked you to save the date on your calendar for the Reagan Dinner. Now we are excited to announce who our keynote speaker will be that night.
Just two months from now, we'll gather with special guests for cocktails and dinner, then hear from the leader of our nation's leading and most prestigious conservative organization: Alberto Cardenas. A man born in Havana, who escaped with his family from communist Cuba and then went on to co-chair Reagan's Florida campaigns for president and later worked for both the Reagan and Bush administrations. Starting in 1993, Cardenas' decade of service as leader of the Florida GOP saw the sunshine state's minority party gain majorities in the state legislature and congressional delegation for the first time since reconstruction. Mr. Cardenas now works each day to unite the efforts of top conservatives and Republicans across the country as president of the pace-setting American Conservative Union (ACU) and the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
As the oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization in the nation, Cardenas' ACU defines what it means to be a 'card-carrying conservative' and holds every member of Congress accountable for their voting record with ratings that score each of them on the most important issues facing our nation. And when top conservatives and Republicans from across the nation gather together, they assemble at Cardenas' newsmaking CPAC events, where he makes his point crystal clear: "The Republican Party needs to be conservative without apology."
Al Cardenas is the one political leader who can bring conservatives together like no one else. And by headlining HIRA's inaugural Reagan Freedom and Liberty Dinner, this also marks the first time ACU/CPAC's leader has officially visited the islands.
Our keynote speaker Alberto Cardenas will coming from Washington, D.C. for our February 6th gala. And we sincerely hope that you will be able to make time to join us for a very special night. Tickets can be purchased online HERE. Or you can mail a check payable to HIRA to our address: Hawaii Republican Assembly, P.O. Box 2567, Ewa Beach, HI 96706. Tickets are just $75 each (includes dinner and parking). Personal, corporate and PAC contributions are most welcome. Sponsorships and tables are also available.
We hope to see you on this special evening which celebrates the late, great Ronald Reagan and unites conservatives at this crucial time in Hawaii's history. Mahalo for your kokua!
