The University of California-Santa Barbara College Republicans will be hosting Karl Rove on campus next month, February 25, 2010. The “architect” will be discussing his role in the Bush White House and a behind the scenes look at all eight years. Seating to the general public is not available. The seats will be given mainly to the students on campus. But, the College Republicans are offering a few seats to those community members who would be willing to help contribute to bringing Karl Rove to campus. The club will be holding a special reception before the speaking engagement where donors and club members will be able to meet Mr. Rove and mingle with like minded individuals from the Santa Barbara community. There are two ways to help out: The first is to become an event sponsor and the other is to be a reception attendee.
The venue and the reception are only a few hundred feet apart the convenient parking right next door. One of the best parts about supporting the event is that the donations will be made to the Young America’s Foundation. YAF is a 501(c)3 and donations are tax deductible, so everyone wins! A sponsorship, currently, is at $800. This is a discounted rate until February 1, 2010 and an attendee is $200. We know this is a lot, but know it is helping a great cause. Any money extra made will be saved for future events in a fund at YAF for UCSB specifically.
The reception will also be very special to us because we will be honoring some of our greatest supporters over the years, Mary Belle and Tom Snow and the Santa Barbara Lincoln Club. They will be receiving the first Annual UCSB College Republican Community Service Award. This is in appreciation for their dedication to conservatism and their generous help and support to our club that has made so much possible over the last few years.
