Oneida Lincoln Day Dinner and Fundraiser set for April 14; many Auction Items up for bid
The annual Oneida Lincoln Day Dinner and Fundraiser is scheduled for Friday, April 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Oneida County Event Center. Lincoln Day events are special occasions for Republicans across Idaho to come together, enjoy a meal, and celebrate President Abraham Lincoln and the core values of the Party. Lincoln Day events offer a unique opportunity to honor President Lincoln’s legacy. With this in mind, the Oneida Republican Party invites the public to join in as we celebrate this meaningful tradition and pay homage to the legacy of our nation’s 16th President.
Assassinated on April 15, 1865, President Lincoln was the first Republican-elected president and only the second presidential candidate from that party. As president, Lincoln built the Republican Party into a strong national organization and further rallied most of the northern Democrats to the Union cause.
Even when Lincoln attained the high political position of president, he treated others with honesty, humility, courage, justice, and grace. He worked diligently to maintain his reputation as an honest politician and lawyer. His sense of integrity and strong principles were among his great leadership traits. He was willing to compromise, but his core principles did not change. He inspired loyalty and dedication. In popular and scholarly polls, Abraham Lincoln is ranked as the greatest president in American history.
The dinner and fundraiser will host a silent auction and a live auction with many prime items for bid. This event is the only fundraiser which helps support the operations of the local Republican Party for the year. Some of the featured items include gift cards to area restaurants, baskets of goods and wares, handmade items, a 12 Ga Charles Daly semi-automatic shotgun (used), 110 rounds 9mm Luger 115 Gr FMJ, a BioLite wood/charcoal Fire Pit/BBQ, overnight stay to an Air B&B, autographed books by Congressman Chris Stewart, CAT Car and Truck Battery Pack with Compressor, and many more items.
