PHOTOS BY HEATHER N. GRIMMER/CONTRIBUTOR - Donald Trump spoke to about 700 people Friday night at the Erie County GOP annual Lincoln Leadership Reception fundraiser. 

Trump didn't commit to running for office, 
but many in the crowd hoped he'll run.
Business mogul Donald Trump served as the focal point and guest of honor for 700 Erie County Republicans Friday night at the annual Lincoln Leadership Reception.

The $100-a-plate dinner offered an upgraded option of $500 per couple for a meet and greet and photo opportunity with Trump, who has hinted that he may be interested in running for governor if he can get the support of the GOP.

“I just happen to think that this state can be turned around,” Trump said during his speech, which at times sounded like a stump speech and at times sounded like a campfire tale including anecdotes about bridges in New York state versus bridges in China.

East Niagara was well represented at the dinner by City of Lockport GOP Committee Chairman Pete Robinson, former Niagara County GOP Chairmen Henry Wojtaszek and Mike Norris, as well as current GOP Chairman Scott Kiedrowski.

Other East Niagara notables included Congressman Chris Collins and former Assemblyman Mike Cole, who now serves as chairman of the Alden Republican Committee.

City of Lockport Republican Committee Chairman Pete Robinson was among the many guests at the fundraiser. 
Salvatore's Italian Gardens was packed to standing-room-only during Trump's 45-minute speech.
Trump told reporters after his speech that if the Republican Party will unify behind him, he'll run.
