HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania’s Republican Party will feature billionaire real-estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as the guest at a New York City fundraiser.

Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Rob Gleason says Trump is doing well in polling and that the party’s donors would like to hear from him at the $1,000-a-head Commonwealth Club luncheon Dec. 11.

Gleason says Trump’s appearance isn’t an endorsement from the state party, but it could encourage more than 300 to show up at the Plaza Hotel. Beforehand, Trump will appear at a $2,500-a-person VIP photo reception.

It’s one of the many festivities surrounding the annual Pennsylvania Society dinner that typically draws thousands from the state’s political and business establishments.

The primary is April 26.
