Save the Date! Winans Dinner Coming in April
Get out your red pens and circle the date, Democrats. Livingston County Democrats will party-down at their annual Winans Dinner on April 19. The event, beginning at 6 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m., will be held at the Hamburg VFW Hall. The site is entirely proper because Gov. Edwin Winans, the first Democrat elected governor of Michigan after the Civil War, was from Hamburg Township.
Tickets will be $60 apiece, the same as last year. People who have made monthly pledges, however, will receive up to two free tickets, based on the amount of their pledges.
We are working to line up two exciting speakers whom you won't want to miss.
The Silent Auction also will return. The party is looking for donations of new or like-new items, as well as services, that can be featured in the auction. Can you cook a special dinner for six? Or deliver a freshly-baked pie to an auction winner every month for a year? Be creative!
As time goes on, we'll feature posts on some of the items in the silent auction so you can plan your bidding strategy in advance. Or just save your money so you can bid on everything.
After all, the money goes to a good cause -- Livingston County Democrats!
