SEATTLE—Washington Policy Center’s Western Washington Annual Dinner featuring Newt Gingrich and Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel, has completely sold out, the free-market think tank announced today.  Advertising was pulled earlier this week.

“We’ve always had great attendance with over 1400 attendees,” said Dann Mead Smith, president of WPC. “This year has been outstanding as we will have record attendance and surpass our fundraising goals.”

Washington Policy Center Annual Dinner events have been a tradition for more than 20 years. WPC Annual Dinners in Eastern and Western Washington and the WPC Young Professionals dinner combine for an attendance of more than 2500 business and community leaders, policymakers, and active citizens. The events are among the largest of their kind in the nation.

Those under the age of forty can still take advantage of the opportunity to attend Washington Policy Center’s Young Professionals Annual Dinner, which is held on the same night and at the same location as the general Annual Dinner.  The YP event also features former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich as keynote speaker and grassroots leader of the “No” Seattle “head tax” movement, grandson of the founder of Dick’s Drive-In, Saul Spady. Tickets to that event are still available and start at $50, though college students can attend for free but need to RSVP.

The Eastern Washington WPC Annual Dinner is held in Spokane on October 24th and will feature HUD Secretary, Dr. Ben Carson and former U.S. Senator and vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman.
