Pot O’ Gold Dinner coming March 10th!

Please join the Clackamas Democrats for a casual dinner with a touch of Irish malarkey!  Sunday evening, March 10th, the fun starts at 5:00pm with cocktails and socializing at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas. There’s a map if you click here.

During the cocktail hour guests can buy a necklace to participate in the “Heads or Tails” game with a chance to win a wonderful prize!  Dinner will be served at 6:00pm, followed by a live auction of wrapped gifts.

To support the auction, we encourage guests to bring a wrapped gift with a minimum value of $20, but it is not required. Please, no wine or alcohol.  To accommodate your budget,  tickets are priced from $30 to $60 each.
