First lady Melania Trump on Friday made a solo appearance at a pre-dinner VIP reception at Mar-a-Lago where the Palm Beach County Republican Party held its annual Lincoln Day fundraising dinner, The Palm Beach Post reported.

The event took place hours after House Speaker Paul Ryan announced the healthcare replacement bill would not go to the floor for a vote because it lacked the support it needed from the Republican-led chamber, a major blow for President Donald Trump and the White House. 

Gov. Rick Scott, Lt. Gov. Carlos López-Cantera and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam attended the event and gave speeches. Two of President Donald Trump’s biggest supporters – Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, sisters whose videos backing the president have gone viral – were also in Palm Beach.

The fundraiser was the biggest of the year for the Palm Beach County Republican Party, with nearly 700 people in attendance. Guests paid $300 or more to be there, with $300,000 expected to be raised. The event was held in the Trump ballroom at Mar-a-Lago, which cost $150,000 to rent out.

"Our fundraising is up, our interest in the party is up," Peter Feaman, the National Committeeman for the party representing Florida, told WPTV.

"We are very good friends with Mr. Trump and he's sent us a letter of congratulations for this evening's event, and we support him," Barnett says. "He never forgets the little people, who helped get him where he is now."
