Why the Roosevelt Dinner & Auction?

By Peter Nordbye, Chair of Clackamas County Democrats

One of the great philosophical questions of all time is “WHY?” One of the great philosophical responses to that question most of the time is “WHY NOT?” But in answering “Why attend the Clackamas County Democratic Party fundraiser Roosevelt Dinner &Auction at the Tualatin Country Club on November 11th,” the “why not” response is not adequately deep in a cognative sense.

Here is why it is a great idea to attend the Roosevelt Dinner on November 11th:

  • Our keynote speaker is Congressperson Suzanne Bonamici.
  • Our DPO Chair, Jeanne Atkins, will present the Jill Thorn Grant Award to Sonya Fischer.
  • The Monroe Sweetland Democrat of the Year Award will be revealed.
  • Dave Hunt will be auctioneer and there are many fabulous items being auctioned.
  • Once again, the silent auction and raffle items will blow your mind.
  • It is always fun hanging out with fellow Democrats.
  • It is very cool to hang out with Democrats nowadays.
  • We raise funds to elect Democrats and to support important work in Clackamas County.

Then, again, Why Not?

Come join us at the Roosevelt Dinner & Auction on November 11th. Help build the Democratic Party of Clackamas County through your support. Besides, it’s really fun. You have until November 8th to purchase tickets to the dinner.

I will see you there!
