Republicans in Illinois will be marking the anniversary of Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday next month with a fundraiser at a Chicago hotel.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is among those who have confirmed an appearance.

Tickets will range from $100 to $20,000.

The event will be held February 5, one day before Reagan's actual birthday.

GOP officials said they've also invited a number of potential presidential candidates, including former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
