The Nackey Loeb School of Communications has announced that general admission and VIP package tickets to its annual First Amendment honors event, with featured speaker Donald Trump, are available at http://www.loebschool.org. A small number of sponsorship opportunities remain as well.
The early evening event is on Nov. 12 at the Radisson in downtown Manchester. The 12th annual honors program, it will highlight individuals or groups that have used their First Amendement freedoms in some important way in the past year.
Previous honorees have included an outspoken school board member, a former state attorney general, and reporters or editors from newspapers such as the Nashua Telegraph, Portsmouth Herald, and Keene Sentinel. This year’s honorees are expected to be announced within a few weeks.
Businessman Trump is known as much for his business-reality TV series as for his mega-deals. But he has also been mentioned for political office, from governor of New York to the White House, an address he has not ruled out.
His last New Hampshire appearance, a Politics and Eggs breakfast at St. Anselm College, drew a record crowd.
Tickets for the event, which begins with receptions at 5:30 p.m., range from $75 to $150.
