Once again, the Collin County Democratic Party is gearing up for our annual Ann Richards Fundraiser Dinner. We will have not one, but TWO KEYNOTE SPEAKERS who will entertain guests with their memories of Ann Richards, our Governor from 1991-1995. Jim Hightower was Texas Agriculture Commissioner from 1983-1991. Mary Beth Rogers was Ann’s Campaign Manager both for her victory and for her defeat for re-election. We also are honored by the presence of Texas Democratic Party Chair, Gilberto Hinojosa, who will speak to the party faithful. Lynne Sipiora, former Executive Director of Samaritan Inn, is our emcee.
We believe we have an outstanding opportunity this year to start turning Collin County Blue, and we need your help. We have our largest slate of candidates since 2002, we are busy organizing wonderful volunteers to get out the vote up and down the ballot, and we are executing Coordinated Campaign strategy to build on this year’s huge Primary Election voter turnout – our largest since 2008. What we need now is your help to fund these efforts. All proceeds from this event stay in Collin County and help us get out the vote and get these candidates elected. Your support is crucial.
This year’s event is Saturday, August 27 at the McKinney Sheraton Hotel (map) at 6:00 pm. There will be dinner, program including our wonderful speakers, dancing and a silent auction. Sponsorships are available. You can visit our website for more information and purchase tickets here.
Please join us for a fun night with like minded Democrats to celebrate our party and push us forward into the election!
