I am absolutely thrilled to announce that the keynote speaker for The Family Foundation's 2009 Richmond Gala will be the former Governor of Arkansas, candidate for President, and currently a FOX News commentator Governor Mike Huckabee!

Governor Huckabee, the host of the number one rated weekend hit Huckabee on the Fox News Channel, is known for his strong stand in defense of the unborn and traditional marriage. A former Baptist minister that ran for and won elected office, he is the embodiment of everything the far left in our nation hates — a combination of church and state! 

I can't tell you how excited we are that Governor Huckabee will be joining us for the annual Richmond Gala, Monday, October 26. The dinner will be at 7:00 p.m. and a private sponsors reception and photo line beginning at 5:30 p.m.

We've moved the Gala up from previous years to accommodate Governor Huckabee's schedule, and we hope you will be able to come to Richmond to join us for what promises to be an incredibly motivating evening just a week before this year's crucial elections.

Details for the evening are being finalized, but invitations will be in the mail soon!

The invitation will include details of the sponsorship benefits including the private reception, photo line, and autographed book by Governor Huckabee. A discounted hotel group rate is also being negotiated for people desiring to spend the night in Richmond. 

So please mark your calendar today and plan to be in Richmond the evening of Monday, October 26, to hear Governor Mike Huckabee at The Family Foundation's Richmond Gala!
