Navajo Canyon Republican Women, Federated (NCRWF) has a fun evening planned for April 11, complete with taco bar dinner and dessert, engaging speaker and the famous Navajo Road Show silent auction. The event will be at the Elk’s Lodge in El Cajon from 5 to 8 p.m.
A live auction for three days at Carriage House in Las Vegas and an opportunity drawing for cash, among other things, will keep things lively. We encourage all conservative women to bring their spouses, friends and family to join us for a fun evening and to get acquainted with other like-minded women.
Cost of the dinner is $35. There is a no-host bar, and RSVPs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 619-990-2791. The Elk’s Lodge, which has recently been remodeled, is located at 1400 E. Washington Ave. in El Cajon.
We are delighted that our evening’s keynote speaker will be Tom Del Beccaro, a well-respected speaker, writer and former chairman of the California Republican Party. He is currently a Forbes columnist who writes frequently about tax policy and national politics.
Del Becarro has authored two books, “The Divided Era” and “The New Conservative Paradigm,” that analyze the role of tax policy in American presidential and congressional politics from the 1950s to 2010. He is also a frequent talk radio and TV commentator with regular appearances on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX discussing current events in politics. He can be heard Friday mornings on our local Mark Larson show at 1170 AM radio.
Del Becarro currently practices business and real estate law and was a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2014.
The Navajo Road Show is a play on the famous television show, “Antiques Road Show,” and is a favorite fundraiser for club members. Club members donate their no-longer-needed collectibles, antiques, and other like-new items such as handbags, jewelry, crystal, candles and kitchen gadgets. Bottles of wine or liquor might also be part of the live auction that goes on through the evening. Especially with the three-day stay in Las Vegas, the bidding could be fierce, but always fun.
For those of you not familiar with us, NCRWF is the largest Republican women’s club in the county with membership throughout the county. We are a partisan political organization with political education and the election of Republican candidates and support of Republican principles as our objective. We are a five-fold, Diamond Award-winning club.
NCRWF is a club without geographical boundaries and open to all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. We love meeting with women with similar interests and together being active and having a positive impact on the community.
NCRWF regularly sponsors candidate forums and participates in street fairs to register voters. We recently raised money to buy a track chair for a wounded veteran and indulged in a fashion show fundraiser.
