Lincoln Day Dinner 2023

Our 2023 Lincoln Day Dinner was a smashing success! 200 people attended the dinner at Polo Fields Country Club. The food was phenomenal; our keynote speaker, Wallbuilders founder David Barton, was enlightening; our emcee, Senator Jim Runestad, was a delight; and the company of 200 Republicans - including seven tables of high school and college students - made it an unforgettable evening.

From all us at WCGOP, to you... Again, a Special Thank You! – to all of our guests and supporters who came out on a Thursday night to attend our Lincoln Day Dinner Event with our Keynote Speaker Mr. David Barton.
Mr. Barton's presentation was amazing, and the American History he brought forward left many attending simply in awe. His talk, for over one hour, with no notes whatsoever drove home critical points about our Party and America that many Republicans don't know. You can find Mr. Barton online at
The Silent Online Auction was also a great success, grossing over seven thousand dollars for Republican causes in the county. We can not do it without you!  And we hope to see you soon. 

With very special thanks to Polo Fields Country Club for hosting the event, to Life is Sweet bakery in Milan for providing an incredible dessert, to State Representative Kathy Schmaltz for sponsoring a table, to our other table sponsors - Tim Golding, Rob Zimmerman, Cindy Fischhaber, Kenneth Dignan - to Ambassador Ron Weiser and Eileen Weiser for sponsoring our youth tables, to our tremendous volunteers - Angela Dahms, Morgan Rowe, Casey Campbell, Ron Howdyshell, Polly McNichol, Leslie Shannon, Bob Deacon - we couldn't have done it without you.

For the entire Team at WCGOP,
Thank you again so very much...
Eric Lielbriedis
