Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will return to the Roanoke Valley on Friday, headlining a fundraising dinner at Hotel Roanoke.
The event will include a dinner for high-dollar donors, a VIP photo reception and general reception for lower-dollar donors, according to an invitation to the event obtained this morning. Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has not announced details of the event.
Tickets for the dinner are $10,000 per person. The VIP photo reception costs $2,500 per person and admission to the general reception is $250. The proceeds go to Romney Victory Inc., a joint committee that includes the Romney campaign, the Republican National Committee, the GOP Senate and congressional campaign committees and four state Republican committees.
This will be Ryan’s second trip to the Roanoke Valley in as many months. Last month, the Wisconsin congressman campaigned at Northwest Hardware in Roanoke County.
Before coming to Roanoke, Ryan is scheduled to appear at a Friday afternoon campaign rally at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg.
Romney will hold a public campaign event in Fairfax on Thursday.
