The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is continually providing guidance on how to deal with the COVID 19 pandemic. The CDC now recommends organizers cancel or postpone events with 50 people or more.
It is with heavy hearts that we must therefore postpone the Gala & Silent Auction scheduled for April 10. We’ve been in communication with the hotel and speakers and the Gala has been rescheduled for Friday, October 9.
Of course, this major event was one of the key ways we planned to celebrate the centennial of women winning the right to vote, but it was also an integral fundraiser for the party so we could move forward in supporting our candidates, building our precincts, printing canvassing materials and slate cards, paying for radio ads to get the vote out, and so much more.
For those of you that have not yet purchased tickets, but would like to attend the October 9 event, stay tuned. Ticket sales will resume shortly.
If you have already indicated support for the party and this event by purchasing tickets, thank you for your generosity and I hope you will be able to pencil this in on your October calendar. Your donation is so important to our operations as we head into the busy election season.
But allow me to offer you a range of choices on this. Please email me with your your selection:
Option 1: I am able to attend the Gala on October 9, so please keep my payment and move my reservation to the October 9 date.
Option 2: I am unable to attend the Gala on October 9, but please keep my payment as a full donation to the party.
Option 3: I am unable to attend the Gala on October 9. Please, refund my payment.
The Collier County Democratic Party is an all-volunteer organization. We fund all of our activities with support from people like you.
We count on your generosity to help us support and train candidates, help build strong precincts, educate voters, register new voters, print slate and palm cards for the elections, hold candidate forums, host community picnics, keep the doors open at our headquarters location, and much more.
Thank you for your support.
