Vanderburgh County Right to Life confirmed today that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will speak at the group's annual banquet April 16 at The Centre.
The event in The Centre's Bill Brooks Exhibition Hall has sold out of about 2,050 dinner tickets, but Right to Life Executive Director Mary Ellen Van Dyke said arrangements have been made to accommodate an additional 2,500 people for a simulcast with theater seating in The Centre's auditorium.
If both rooms are filled, the Right to Life banquet will be the largest event in The Centre's history, said Dave Rector, general manager of the Evansville Vanderburgh County Building Authority. The Building Authority owns The Centre.
"We'll have to buy additional plates, silverware, table settings, that kind of thing," Rector said.
Van Dyke said Right to Life already has several hundred people on a waiting list for simulcast seating.
Simulcast tickets will go on sale March 18 at The Centre.
The local Right to Life organization wooed Palin to Evansville by sending her a steady succession of local delicacies, such as Stephen Libs Finer Chocolates and Ski soda, Van Dyke said.

She broke up with her boyfriend, she didn’t get brain cancer. It’s not the end of the world
She’s spending plenty of time with her.
Bristol Palin’s dog did not die and she is not 6 years old. Give me a break.
Of course Sarah Palin is pro-life without saying a word.
folks, by the time this is said and done that place will be too small to hold everybody that wants to attend. I predict at least 10,000 people minimum. The base is fired up.
Can she accept gifts?
That’s likely the next petty attack.

I’d laugh , but you might just be right.
Since you sound like you know all about Sarah Palin's comings and goings, tell us all -
How much time (in hours per day or days per week, please) just how much time she spends with her daughter, and how much you have decided that she needs to spend with her daughter.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
How do you know Bristol isn’t with Sarah? Oh, tell us, you want Romney next time, right?
I hope we get to see a lot more of her after the legislative session ends. 3 events planned for April and June. She should come to the lower 48 once a month. She’s received thousands of invitations, and should even take some of the overseas speaking engagements that she’s been invited to.
Wow, the comment section after the original article (Evansville newspaper) not only has over 400 comments, it gets downright ugly, right away... I suppose I should not be surprised. :-(
No atmospheric phrases like 'a culture of life':
Straight up statement that Roe vs. Wade needs to be overturned and that recognition of this must be a precondition for appointments to the United States Supreme Court.
Her daughter needs to marry the father of their baby.
But Barry is skippimg the annual Gridiron Dinner so he can spend time with his daughters. What a guy!
