The award will be given at the annual Reagan-Helms Victory Celebration which will be held Tuesday May 29th at the Cardinal Club in Raleigh. The celebration honors Reagan's famous 1976 North Carolina victory here, which helped turn around his presidential campaign.
It is given to a member of the legislature who “represents principled conservative leadership.''
Congresswoman Virginia Foxx will serve as keynote speaker. The reception begins at 6 p.m.
East served in the Senate from 1980 until 1986.
