    Excellent find.  

    This is a particularly insidious variation of the "[Republican] of the Year" awards the GOP has used in the past to ensnare wannabe VIPs.  

    A couple of years ago, my sister (a small business owner and, sigh, previous campaign donor) received a similar letter "honoring" her for her "leadership" and inviting her to an official-sounding luncheon to accept the award and "share her views" on issues of concern.  She would have gladly paid her own way to D.C. to participate in a real roundtable event (award or no award), but she was livid when she realized that she was being scammed for a $1,250 rubber-stamp, rubber-chicken fundraiser.  She called up state party officials and gave them a blistering earful, instead.
