A special thanks to Mark Hurd, Gary Anderson, Natalie Levi, and Layne Beck for all of your efforts to make this year’s dinner a smashing success.

We would like to thank David Koch for his generous donations to the Cache County Republican Party, specifically for the prints of Abraham Lincoln for our outgoing legislators Ed Redd and Curt Webb!
