A reception and fundraiser that was scheduled for Sunday night headlined by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was canceled.

Spicer was set to be honored by the Rhode Island Republican Party at an "undisclosed location” at 6 p.m. Sunday. Spicer grew up in Barrington, Rhode Island.

In a statement to NBC 10, Rhode Island Republican Party Chairman Brandon Bell said that the fundraising event was sold out, but did not go into details to explain why it was called off.

Tickets for the event cost a minimum $250. Tickets to the private VIP reception before the event were $1,000.

Bell said the party would schedule Sean Spicer as a honored guest at a later date.
