Auburn Conservatives for Tomorrow (ACT) and Young America’s Foundation will host An Evening with Steve Forbes on Friday, March 21, 2014 at the new Auburn Arena. On Wednesday ACT announced that Alabama Lieutenant Governor Kay Ivey (R) will be the Special Guest at the VIP event.
Ivey is an Auburn graduate, a native of Wilcox County and is the first Republican woman in Alabama history to be Lieutenant Governor. Ivey was also previously elected the state Treasurer.
Steve Forbes will be the speaker at Auburn Conservatives for Tomorrow’s 2nd Annual Spring Conservative Student Conference. This event is on the campus of Auburn University. The keynote address event begins at 7:30 pm and is free for students. This is a change from our earlier reporting where we had the keynote address beginning at 7:00 pm.
General Admission tickets will cost $30 a piece and can be purchased at the door.
There will also be a VIP Dinner & Photo Op beginning at 5:30 PM which is closed to the press.
ACT reported on Wednesday that there are still a limited number of VIP Dinner and Photo Op tickets available. To purchase VIP Dinner & Photo Op tickets for an Evening with Steve Forbes email ACT President Cody Garton directly at [email protected].
