NYYRC 111th Annual Gala with Nigel Farage

Join the New York Young Republican Club for a night of dinner, drinking, and love of country at our 111th Annual Gala!

The New York Young Republican Club is the oldest and largest Young Republican club in the United States, incorporated in 1911 with predecessor organizations dating to 1856.

On Saturday, December 9, we will hold our 111th Annual Gala, just as we have done through every major world event, including both World Wars and COVID-19, since our foundation. We are excited to welcome back both members and guests for a black-tie evening featuring Cipriani’s signature bellini upon arrival, an open bar featuring top shelf liquor, butler-passed hors d’ouvres, and a multi-course French-service dinner as we hear from high-profile national speakers, mingle with honored guests, and discuss opportunities for the advancement of our mission.

The NYYRC is proud to announce Nigel Farage as a Keynote Speaker for our 111th Annual Gala!

Nigel Farage began his career in 1982 as a commodities trader at the London Metal Exchange and years later ran his own metals brokerage firm. He left a successful career behind to go into politics after the Conservative party signed the Maastricht Treaty, which advocated “ever closer union” between European nations. He became a founding member of UKIP in 1993 and set about campaigning for Britain’s EU withdrawal. In 2014, under Farage’s leadership, UKIP came first in the European election topping the poll in the UK with 4.5 million votes and in doing so became the first political party since 1906 to win a national election that was not the Labour or Conservative parties.

This successful result eventually forced the Conservative party to hold a referendum on European Union membership. In June 2016, Farage was a leading figure in the campaign to leave. This gained him the name “Mr Brexit” by Republican Presidential candidate Donald J Trump, whom he supported at a rally on the campaign trail. Nigel Farage was one of the very few that predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidential elections and was the first foreign politician to meet the newly elected President in Trump Tower just days after his historic win.

With it seeming he had won the day, Nigel stepped back from frontline politics, providing political analysis for Fox News in America and presenting a daily show on LBC radio and writing for the Daily Telegraph. In early 2019, he was forced back into Westminster politics in order to stop the Brexit betrayal, founding his new ‘Brexit Party’ to win the May elections in just six weeks of campaigning. This made Nigel the only man in British political history to win two national elections with two different parties.

With Brexit finally secured it looks as though 27 years of hard work has paid off. However, Nigel continues to hold the feet of the ruling Conservative party to the fire as a campaigner and political commentator across British and American media, most notably as host of the prime-time TV show “Farage” on the fiercely independent channel GB News.

Stay tuned for the announcement of our other speakers!

The New York Young Republican Club continues to promote the future political leaders of America by advocating for their involvement in local government, as elected officials, and within major political organizations. The Club is officially recognized by the New York State Young Republicans, Young Republican National Federation, as well as county, state, and national Republican committees.

The New York Young Republican Club was created in 1911 to promote and maintain the principles of the Republican Party. Our mission since then has been:

To promote and maintain the principles of the Republican Party: to foster within the Republican Party and make practical in service of the municipality, state and nation, the idealism characteristic of youth; to correct in our own party that tendency of all parties to make organization an end rather than a means; to develop sound principle and public spirit in party politics; to promote honest and fair electoral mentors, to the end that the expression of the popular will by whatever party or body, shall be as free, untrammeled and equal as possible; to resist and expose political corruption; to advocate merit rather than partisan service as entitling to public office; to watch legislation and encourage public attention to and efficiently criticize the conduct of government.
