The theme of this year’s Annual Golden Donkey Dinner was “Democrats Care.” At the dinner, held May 2nd, a special homemade dessert auction was held to benefit the Clermont County Opiate Task Force to help fight the growing problem of heroin in our county. The Party is pleased to announce that a check was presented to this organization in the amount of $3231.00. The average donation for each item sold was over $250.00, proving that, indeed, Democrats Care. Senior Services George Brown volunteered to serve as Auctioneer.
In addition to the charity auction, P.G. Sittenfeld, Cincinnati Councilman and candidate for the US. Senate, was the guest speaker.
Executive Chair Raymond W. Lembke and Executive vice Chair Judy Miller awarded Charlie Carlier from Goshen with the prestigious Golden Donkey Award, and the Grass Roots Award went to Chris Barnett for his work with West Clermont Dems. Ron Kidd received special recognition for his work in reviving the Goshen Dems. ~ Submitted by Jan Schoellman
are all in this
we all need to exert some effort.
Here are a few things which you can
1. Join the Donkey Club. The Donkey Club is the Clermont County Democratic Party’s major fundraising initiative. It is a fact that money is required to be heard in politics. It costs us approximately $10,000 per year to keep our office operating. Your membership in the Donkey Club helps us pay our bills and maintain the Democratic Party in Clermont County. While we’ll never rival the Koch Brothers, the more money we can raise, the better able we will be to make the Democratic voice heard. A membership form and return envelope are enclosed, or you can join online at 'The Donkey Club'. You can even set up a periodic donation if that works better for you.
2. Attend Our Events. We have a number of events throughout the year that offer a good time, good food, and good company; and which help support the local party as we prepare for national, state, and local elections in 2016. Our calendar of events is posted here.
3. Join a Democratic Club. There are currently three Democratic clubs operating in Clermont County. Club meetings are typically monthly, are low-key, and are in convenient locations. Information about our Democratic clubs is posted here.
As last year’s election showed, there is still a great amount of work to be done to reach potential voters and give them a reason to participate. Please use the form below and the enclosed return envelope to help us in this effort for 2015 and beyond. Whatever amount you can contribute, we are all Democrats working for the futures of everyone in our County, our State, and our Nation. We are all in this together, and we respectfully ask for your help.
