What A Swell Party We Had!

The 43rd Ward Democrats First Annual Unity Fundraiser was an enormous success! Despite the downpour outside, it was standing room only inside. Thanks to each of you who attended and helped make this a night to remember.

A very special thanks to our gracious hosts Bob and Eudice Fogel for inviting us into their lovely home and to Peg Roth, our former 43rd Ward Democratic Committeeman, who served as Honorary Co-Chair of the event. Stunning floral arrangements were provided by Dilly Lily - one of our local 43rd Ward businesses.

Many of our local elected officials served as hosts along with numerous friends in the 43rd Ward community. Please take a moment to look at our Unity Event Photos to see the full range of our 150 attendees.

This is a tremendously important time for the Democratic Party, including those of us in the 43rd Ward. The success of our Fundraiser makes it possible for us to continue organizing for the November election. It ensures that we will be able to continue our voter registration drive and implement a precinct operation that will turn out the vote in November. It means continuing to make phone calls and making trips to Michigan to turn out the vote there for Barack Obama. It means we can truly make a difference in this most important race for the White House.

That's why we came together for this Unity Event and that's where you can help. To volunteer in the election effort please contact me at michele43rd@gmail.com.
