UPDATED:The private nonprofit formed to advance Republican Gov. Pat McCrory's agenda is newly reorganized and poised to hold its first big-dollar member retreat next week at a swanky Greensboro resort.
The June 27-28 event at the Grandover Resort opens with a dinner and exclusive forum featuring McCrory and S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley. The minimum price for two tickets to the Thursday night activities is $1,000. The Friday agenda includes policy briefings and roundtable discussion with McCrory and other civic and business leaders, according to a fundraising invitation.
It costs $10,000 for two to attend the entire two-day event and benefits the Renew North Carolina Foundation, an entity created by key allies to the governor formerly known as the Foundation for North Carolina, which hosted its own inaugural ball. About 100 to 150 people are expected to attend, organizers said.
