The San Diego County Democratic Party’s annual gala and awards dinner will be held on Saturday April 11th, in the Sapphire Terrace and Ballroom at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.
Tickets for Clubmembers (and GO Team members) are only $100 as opposed to the regular individual tickets of $125 per person – you can save more than your membership!
You can pay by cash or check at the next club meeting or online at the SDCDP website.
The leaders of both chambers of the California legislature, the state’s chief elections officer, and other prominent Democrats will be highlighted.
We’ll hear from San Diego’s own Toni Atkins, the Speaker of the Assembly; keynote speaker Kevin de León, President pro Tempore of the Senate; Alex Padilla, the California Secretary of State, and Assemblymember Shirley Weber, the evening’s honorary chair.
Awards will be presented to exemplary volunteers and leaders from around the county, including our Vice President Michael Johnson, and there will be a special tribute to the Voting Rights Act to mark the 50th anniversary of the passage of that landmark bill.
