Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - On Wednesday, Iowa's Republican Party announced the date for its largest annual fundraiser - The Ronald Reagan Dinner.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the first to confirm his attendance, according to the state party.
"That's the one we've got so far," said Ryan Gough of the Iowa GOP.
The party says eight other GOP presidential candidates have been invited to attend.
The event will happen on the evening of November 4 in Des Moines. Ticket prices range between $75 for general seating up to $1,500 for a VIP table of ten.
According to a statement from Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn, the other invited candidates include: Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, conservative businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Michigan Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Unlike Perry, Romney has paid scant attention to stumping in Iowa so far, though his campaign acknowledges the former Massachusetts governor will return to Iowa this fall.
Romney was last in Iowa on August 11 when he attended the state fair during the day and a presidential debate later in the evening.
Like Perry, Bachmann has also been actively campaigning in Iowa. Her efforts helped propel her to victory in the state's Ames Straw Poll in August. Yet Bachmann's political fortunes have sagged since Perry entered the race. CNN contacted Bachmann's campaign to see if the candidate will attend the Nov. 4 event but did not receive a response.
The Iowa GOP chair stressed the importance of the dinner.
"Not only does this event greatly boost Republican organizing efforts in Iowa, but it will provide a tremendous opportunity for our presidential candidates to address and meet thousands of Iowa's most influential Republican activists," Strawn said in a statement.
