Dec. 14, 2018

PHOENIX — Turning Point USA is proud to announce Rush Limbaugh will become the first recipient of the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award presented at the Winter Gala, a private event held Friday, Dec. 21, at Mar-a-Lago Club as part of the Student Action Summit (SAS) 2018. Limbaugh will deliver keynote remarks alongside other speakers including Donald Trump, Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk.

“We are beyond excited that the one and only Rush Limbaugh will be in attendance at the Winter Gala to receive Turning Point USA’s first ever Lifetime Achievement Award,” says Kirk, founder and executive director of TPUSA. “So many of us have benefited from listening to Rush when we were younger and now as adults. He is the standard bearer in the conservative movement and an intellectual bright light for all us who want to follow in his footsteps to restore America to her founding ideals of individual liberty and limited government. I know I speak for everyone at TPUSA, and everyone who will attend the Winter Gala, when I say we are beyond honored to celebrate such a great American patriot.”

Organized by Turning Point USA from Dec.19-22 in West Palm Beach, Florida, with as many as 5,000 students between the ages of 15-25 expected in attendance, SAS 2018 is considered the largest gathering of young conservatives in the country. Attendees will hear from prominent thinkers and newsmakers, receive first-class activism and leadership training, and participate in a series of networking events with political leaders and top-tier activist organizations.
