Yes, this is a fund-raiser as well as a fun-raiser to energize volunteers, voters, and
activists for the 2024 campaign. Invited speakers include Sens. Jack Reed, Sheldon
Whitehouse, and candidates for state and federal offices. You won't want to miss the
chance to chat with local Dems, and to help raise money for local elections.
It's not just about the food, as in previous years there's a 50/50 raffle, with tickets
$1/each or 6 for $5. Last year’s winner went home with over $500! Proceeds from the
event go to the Portsmouth Democratic Town Committee.
