The Spaghetti Dinner is our number one fundraiser for the year. In order for it to be successful, we need to sell tickets!!!
The Spaghetti Dinner will once again be held at the Jackson Community Center, which is located at N165W20330 Hickory Lane Jackson, WI.
Tickets are available at the Washington County Dem Office. You can purchase your tickets at the office, and you can also check out tickets to sell to friends and relatives – bring the money back in once you make the sale! It is important that tickets are pre-purchased so we know how much food to buy and prepare!
We now have two confirmed speakers: Randy Bryce, candidate running for Congress against Paul Ryan and Khary Penebaker, former candidate for Congress in the 5th CD and current member of the DNC. Both are outstanding speakers and certain to leave you feeling optimistic and energized for the 2018 Elections.
Here is an article recently published by The Isthmus about Randy Bryce’s campaign: http://isthmus.com/news/cover-story/can-blue-collar-progressive-randy-bryce-topple-paul-ryan/
Another way we raise money at this event is through our silent auction and this auction is dependent on donations from supporters like you! Please see the specific information below on how to make a donation. It is VERY important that we have donations!
You may have noticed an “increase” in ticket price. This is just an illusion!! This year we are charging $15 per ticket instead of $10. HOWEVER, the $15 INCLUDES a choice of beverage from the bar – wine, beer, soda, juice box, etc – rather than asking for a separate donation for the drinks. This is because of the new, stricter reporting requirements of the Government Accountability Board.
Social hour will be from 4 – 5 PM, followed by dinner at 5 PM, and speakers at 5:45 PM. The Packers play early that day so you have plenty of time to watch the game and then come down to our annual get together. Put it on your calendar now so you don’t miss it!!
Get your tickets at the office soon!
