Michigan’s only Trump Inauguration Ball Comes to Soaring Eagle

“DeploraBall” Kicks off Michigan’s Premier Conservative Event

Walled Lake, MI [Immediate Release]:  Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as our 45th President on January 20, 2017. Trump supporters are invited to a Trump Inauguration Ball without leaving the state.

Battle Cry ’17 will kick off the Inauguration celebrations with its Black and White Inauguration Ball on Friday, January 20 at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI.  The event will feature dress from tuxedos and gowns to jeans and boots---all black and white of course.

“Those planning to attend the Washington D.C. festivities are learning that even the Inauguration basics can be shockingly expensive.   We continue to hear that suite-style hotels are changing over $800 per night, often with a three or four night guaranteed minimum stay.   Add transportation and attending the actual Inauguration, while it would be awesome, could also be beyond the financial reach of many ‘deplorables’,” said Rosanne Ponkowski, Michigan Conservative Coalition’s President.  “While some D.C. galas are already sold out, our Trump DeploraBall is set and affordable.  We hope to see many happy Trump supporters there!”

“All Trump supporters should attend to celebrate his victory.  We all put in so much hard work and now is the time to celebrate!   Our Inauguration Ball has also been called ‘The People’s Gala’ by some because we are celebrating the ‘People’s President-elect’.  Plus the Ball is included in your Battle Cry ’17 registration,” added Ponkowski.

The Black and White Ball is part of MCC’s two day event Battle Cry ’17.   After Battle Cry’s first ever event last year, it was immediately established as the premier gathering of political conservatives in Michigan.  Learn more and register here

“On Saturday, Battle Cry will feature national and Michigan experts to help assess what Trump’s victory means for the future of the conservative movement,” said Ponkowksi.  “Many who attended our first Battle Cry event were motivated to join our Michigan grassroots team.  Those hard working volunteers were an important part in turning Michigan red.  We feel this is just a beginning!  Our BC ’17 will be a terrific event.  Join us!”
