Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Thomas Jefferson Dinner 2023

We are Painting the County Blue
at the 2023 Thomas Jefferson Dinner

Celebrate with us the growth and accomplishments of our Party this past year at our annual Thomas Jefferson Dinner. 

We are excited to announce the Hon. Lisa Hernandez, Democratic Party of Illinois Chair, will be a featured speaker! In addition, we will be hearing from our very own State Representative Suzanne Ness.

Socialize at a cocktail hour that includes a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, and raffle. Shop the incredible silent auction baskets we are putting together. Then enjoy a 3-course dinner followed by dessert and coffee. Still just $100/person or $1,000 for a table of ten. Sponsorships are also available - please contact Kristina at [email protected].

This event regularly sells out so RSVP now! We are accepting reservations through April 1st.

If you cannot attend, we will miss you. Follow us and make a donation.

Volunteers are needed to help with the event and/or donate items for the silent auction. Sign up here.

Winning auction item bids will be processed for payment on site at the end of the dinner. 

We look forward to seeing you!
