Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ


It's that time again!  We are counting down and preparing for the 2015 Black Tie and Blue Jeans, and this year, in honor of Gloria Fletcher, it will be officially known as The Ronald Reagan Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ:  The Gloria Fletcher Edition.

We are working hard and fast to pile up some great guests.  Governor Rick Scott is going to be one of our keynotes and helping us to honor the life and legacy of Gloria Fletcher.

The Alachua County Republican Party has aimed to set itself apart by bringing in interesting and exciting speakers. From David Limbaugh to Ann Coulter, and Alveda King to Former Iraqi General Georges Sada, Sean Hannity, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and Andrea Tantaros, it has been our goal to set the standard for exciting and innovative speakers.

The 2015 Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ with Governor Rick Scott is on Thursday, November 5th at the Canterbury Equestrian Show Place in Newberry (23100 West Newberry Road, Newberry Road, Newberry, Fl).

Governor Rick Scott started his career as a lawyer in Dallas, Texas, representing health care, oil and gas and communications companies, with a heavy emphasis on health care mergers and acquisitions. During this time, Governor Scott recognized that patient services could be improved by improving hospital efficiency, lowering costs and focusing on better outcomes.

In 1987, Rick Scott started Columbia Hospital Corporation and grew it into one of the premier health care organizations in the country. He left Columbia in 1997, but continued his passion for innovating, entrepreneurship and charitable work.

In 2010, Rick Scott decided to take his passion for organizational transformation to government and ran for Governor of Florida, knowing that he could make a difference. He was elected as Florida's 45th Governor in November of 2010 and set out to transform the State of Florida into a competitive, job creating state, and he is succeeding.
In 2014, the people of Florida chose Rick Scott to lead the State for another term.
