Picture yourself in a Hilton Hotel ballroom with 600 like-minded Democrats where you can discuss the nation's and county's problems and the Democrats solutions for those ills. Add in speeches from the rousing US Senator Patty Murray and the ebullient WA Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Treat yourself to a tasty supper. Add in the fun of bidding on great items in a Silent Auction and vying for rewarding prizes in the Live Auction. Put this altogether as an opportunity for you to have fun while promoting the best interests of your Clark County Democrats and the best candidates possible, and you're at the 2016 Clark County Democrats FORWARD TOGETHER Dinner and Auction.
This is the only Gala and Fundraiser for the Clark County Democrats. You may remember a different name - it was called the Jefferson Jackson, or JJ, Dinner. Same purpose, same good time, same high-minded goals - different name now. It's good conversation, it's solving problems, it's raising money, it's having fun!
The Clark County Democrats have for a long time helped candidates in a special way. Instead of just giving money to campaigns, they provide office space and support, like printers and paper, in conjunction with the State Party Coordinated Campaign division to have a local office for Presidential, Gubernatorial, US Senate, and legislative and county campaigns. This is a pretty clever concept- it provides a central location where campaigns can be found by volunteers and supporters who want to work for their favorite candidate and cause. This becomes an exciting atmosphere with lots of ideas and energy throughout the space. It costs money for office space and phones and supplies.
Another thing the Clark County Democrats did in 2013 was to secure a bigger, more available year-round office space. This means more party activities can be centrally held, and the interested public can find the Democratic party and participate fully with them.
With that said you will surely want to attend the Dinner this year to hear from Patty Murray, Bob Ferguson and others, to meet old friends, to talk politics, and to support your local Democrats at the Clark County Democrats 2016 FORWARD TOGETHER DINNER and AUCTION.
Mark the date - SATURDAY JUNE 11, 2016 - Call your friends, put together a table of 10 for some real fun and Come to the Dinner.
See You There!
