It’s just a few days away — the annual Clackamas Democrats White Donkey Dinner — and tickets are going fast for the Friday, Jan. 23, 6 p.m. event at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas. Deadline for reservations is Tuesday, January 20th, when Anita, our Fundraising Chair, needs to give a total count to the hotel catering manager.
Two major fund-raisers have taken place over the past several years: The annual Roosevelt Dinner at the Oswego Country Club is the big-ticket item, and this month’s affair, at $30 per person, is equally popular with a broader audience.
Instead of the typical “white elephant” event where a gift of indeterminate value is re-wrapped and re-gifted, Democrats call them white donkeys. An evening of fun is guaranteed as State Rep. Brent Barton will be our auctioneer, and high bidders win lovely gifts, possibly even a sudden surprise.
Two ways to make sure you’re there for the auction fun:
- Mail your check to us at P.O. Box 44, Oregon City OR 97045.
- Register at our website, www.clackamasdems.org.
Because this is a political donation, there is attendant paperwork no matter which of the alternatives you choose. But definitely pick one. We’ll see you there on the 23rd.
Clackamas Democrats will be joining their Washington County counterparts for the Centro Cultural 4th Annual Auction and Fundraising Gala to be held on Saturday, November 1st from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. This follows a well-attended meeting of our local party leadership with active Latino leaders in Oregon City last month.
Centro Cultural provides education and empowerment programs for the Latino community. They include youth programs, English as a second language, Spanish literacy, computer technology, cultural values, leadership training and community organizing.
Up for bid at the silent auction are overnight stays at the Wild Horse Casino and Resort and the Inn at Seaside, a tour and tasting at Ambacht Brewery, tickets to Bag&Baggage and Teatro Milagro theater performances, restaurant gift certificates and museum memberships.
Guests will also have an opportunity to bid on special packages at the live auction including a week’s stay for four at the Flamingo Resort in Costa Rica, lunch in the capitol with Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown, and a fishing trip with Cornelius City Councilor Dave Schamp and Centro Executive Director Jose Rivera.
The event will be held at:
NW Events & Environments
2900 NW 229th Ave, Suite 100
Hillsboro, OR 97124
Tickets are $85 per individual (tax deductible) and are available now by visiting the Centro Cultural website.

A meal is included, and the event will be followed by a reception, cocktail party, and auction. Continue reading
