WCDP Monthly Meeting @ Warren County Administration Building
Aug 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
WCDP Monthly Meeting @ Warren County Administration Building

Please plan on joining us for our August meeting. This is an extremely important meeting, as members of the WCDP Executive Committee will be electing a new county party chair to replace our outgoing chair Bethe Goldenfield as she retires after decades of service to our party. We’ll also be recapping our efforts in the August 8th election — recognizing the hard work of everyone who volunteered, and celebrating our victory in blocking Issue 1. Because of that high-priority business, we won’t have a guest speaker at our August meeting.

We will be live-streaming the meeting on our Facebook page for those who aren’t able to attend in-person, but in-person attendance is required for Executive Committee members to vote on any party business. There is no process in the WCDP Bylaws for proxy voting or for remote voting at an in-person meeting.

2023 WCDP Gala & Silent Auction @ Manor House
Aug 20 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Mark your calendars now: Our 2023 Gala & Silent Auction will be at 1:00pm on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at the Manor House in Mason. The WCDP Gala is always a good time with spectacular speakers, great food, and fellowship — and the silent auction is our main fundraising event every year.

We’ve already confirmed two great guest speakers: Ohio Supreme Court Justice Melody Stewart and ODP Chairwoman Liz Walters. Two dynamic, passionate Democrats!

Tickets are $80 each, or sponsor a table of eight for $600.

You can buy your tickets on our ActBlue page or by mailing a check to the Warren County Democratic Party, PO Box 705, Lebanon, OH 45036.

Silent Auction Donations Needed

The silent auction is by far the biggest money-raiser at the gala, and helps keep ticket prices down as well as funding the party’s ongoing operations, helping to support Democratic candidates, and funding local organizing. Our goal for this year’s silent auction is to focus on quality items and themed baskets, including “local content” baskets.

Please help us make this year’s Gala successful by donating items you may have, and asking for donations from your favorite businesses and restaurants. Click here for some suggestions and a donation form.

Your donation will help her print and distribute information to those most likely to vote in this year’s election and solidify her victory in November.

The event will be held in Mason at the home of Sarah & Brenda Burton-Price, with the exact location provided upon RSVP. For questions, contact joyformason@gmail.com.

After a resounding win on August 8th, we Ohio Democrats have an incredible amount of momentum on our side.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow activists throughout the state who engage in the same vital electoral work as you do face to face.
