Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will speak to the Long Island Association on February 17.

Palin has agreed to the high-profile speaking engagement to New York business leaders at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, the group has confirmed, reports the Politico.

Palin will do a one-hour onstage interview in front of a crowd of roughly 1,000 - a rare unscripted event for the former governor.

The LIA identifies itself as the "largest business organization in New York" on its website and has a history of landing big-name guests.

The LIA has not disclosed what it is paying Palin for the appearance, but her reported appearance fee stands at 100,000 dollars per event. (ANI)
