On March 9th the Democratic Party of Lee County held their annual Gala. We honored three Dynamic Democratic Women for their excellent leadership and contribution to move Democrats forward in Lee County. Visits from Andrew Gilliam, Phillip Levine and Ryan Torrens were very welcomed. The silent auction had everyone bidding and hoping to win. Fun was had by all at our 2018 “WINterfest”.
Over 160 guests attended our WINterfest Gala on March 9th, including local and statewide candidates. In honor of Women’s History Month, we honored Sandra McClinton, Arlene Goldberg and Melvin Morgan. Speakers included two gubernatorial candidates, Andrew Gillum and Phillip Levine and Florida Attorney General candidate Ryan Torrens attended and spoke.
Our silent auction was a great success; thank you to all who donated prizes and participated! A special thank you is due for Devin Carver, our Volunteer of the Year. Thank you also to MC David Silverbert, political cartoonist Bill Sanders and all of our volunteers who made it a great night, and a wonderful fundraiser for our efforts to Turn Lee Blue!
