Newaygo Democrats host Dinner, Improv, Music at June 25th Fundraiser
Dinner, humor, music, silent auction and candidate “meet & greet” are all in store at the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, June 25. The Newaygo County Democratic Party will host the event from 5pm – 8pm at the Dogwood Center, located at 4734 S. Campus Court, Fremont.
MCs Nancy Howland Walker and Marshall Stern, two local improv aficionados, will keep the evening moving with wit and humor! Greg Miller, a West Michigan favorite musician, will provide melodies on guitar featuring jazz, rock, country, classical and pop. A Silent Auction will feature items from local artists and gift certificates for local businesses.
“We are fortunate to have 3 candidates for State and Federal seats speak at this year’s Dinner,” states Shelly Ross, Fundraiser Chair. “This gives community members a chance to hear why they are running, and what they can do for us here in Newaygo County.”
Jerry Hilliard is running in the newly redistricted U.S. Congressional 2nd District. The new District map extends far south nearing Kalamazoo, north to Cadillac and Manistee, and east nearly to Midland and Saginaw Bay. Although the new 2nd District no longer targets West Michigan, Mr. Hilliard will make his case to assure West Michiganders of Newaygo County that he will represent us and our issues in Congress.
Mark Bignell is running in another newly redrawn map: Michigan 33rd State Senate District. The new District map includes Montcalm and Newaygo counties and portions of Kent, Ionia, Lake, Muskegon and Ottawa counties.
Amanda Siggins is running in the newly redrawn 101st District House of Representatives. Amanda will discuss her vision for Newaygo County representation.
“The new Districts can be confusing for voters, and a challenge for Candidates as they learn about their new constituents,” stated Dallas Dean, Chair of the Newaygo County Democratic Party (NCDP). “Meeting them at the Dinner on June 25 will give all of us a chance to know one another better, and to take our concerns into their campaigns.”
“There are a few seats left for the Dinner, but they are going fast!” stated Ellen McIntee, NCDP Secretary.
