Donald Trump Jr. will be the keynote speaker at the Summit County Republican Party's 88th annual Lincoln Day dinner next month.

Trump, son of former President Donald Trump, will take part in the July 24 fundraising event starting with a VIP photo reception 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. at Quaker Station, 135 S. Broadway in downtown Akron.  VIP reception tickets, which includes photos with Trump, are $1,000.

General admission tickets are $125. General admission doors open at 5:30, with the dinner and speaking program running from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Summit County Republicans made the announcement via social media, including the group's Facebook page, and the organization's website

“Donald Trump Jr. will continue the Summit County Republican Party’s gilded history of outstanding keynote speakers, including Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush and W. Bush," Bryan Williams, local party chairman, said in a news release. "Our speaker will have a leading role in the path to retaking the House, Senate, and the White House and I could not be more excited to host him in Summit County at our premier event of the year.”

Trump, who is 43, is the eldest son of the former president and the president's first wife, Ivana. He is a top executive in The Trump Organization, has acted as an advisor during his father's presidential campaigns, and has been an outspoken defender of his father.

Former Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the local Republicans' 2020 Lincoln Day dinner, but it was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
