Celebrating the 202nd birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, the Broward Republican Executive Committee is expecting a record crowd for this year’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner being held Friday, March 4, 2011 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina Hotel. Doors will open for a VIP and general reception at 6pm with dinner and a program starting at 7:30pm.
Three featured speakers will headline an event honoring the Centennial Celebration of President Ronald Wilson Reagan – Governor Rick Scott (R-FL), Congressman Allen West (FL-22) and special guest Sharon Day, Co-Chair of the Republican National Committee.
Prior to the dinner, BREC Chairman Richard DeNapoli will host a VIP Reception that will include the featured speakers in addition to local elected officials and candidates for public office. “The reception offers an opportunity to chat one-on-one with our keynote speakers,” says DeNapoli. “You’ll also have an opportunity to talk with some of the candidates who have filed to run for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, the Florida House and Senate, as well as Broward County offices.”
The annual event will be held at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina Hotel, 1881 Southeast 17th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.

The Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) is the governing body of the Republican Party of Broward County. Because counties are divided into precincts for purposes of elections and voting, the BREC membership is made up of one man and woman from each precinct, otherwise known as Precinct Committeeman and Precinct Committeewoman. The idea of a Precinct Committee member is that a person living within a precinct knows his/her neighbors, the issues that affect that community and is familiar with the area. In essence, the precinct committee member becomes the liaison between the county party and the voters in that precinct. The goal of a committee member is to be able to effectively mobilize Republican voters in that precinct, get out the vote, disseminate the Republican message, implement the strategy there, make sure neighbors and friends are registered, and in turn, be your community’s voice in the Republican Executive Committee.
