18th Annual RK Dinner a Huge Success!

Our 18th Roosevelt-Kennedy fundraising dinner sold out! Nearly 300 people attended, including statewide and local candidates. We sold all of our wonderful auction items using an amazing new text-messaging auction format.

We are thankful for the generosity of all who bought tickets and attended, for our auction donors, for the NAU Young Democrats who helped run the show, for the actors in the innovative political skit, for our great speakers -- Jevin Hodge and Isabella Garcia -- and especially for the hard work of the dinner committee which has been working since December to pull all of this together.

The Executive Committee of the Coconino County Democratic Party had a tough choice to make from the four Eleanor Roosevelt Award nominees: Helene Babbitt, Greta Murphy, Lori Polini-Staudinger, and Bill Pribil.  The choice was Professor Lori Polini-Staudinger -- read more here.

Dinner Committee Co-Chairs were Kathy Deasy, Ann Johnson, and Sallie Kladnik. Working under their extraordinary leadership were Louisa Ballard, Kelsey Blakley, Ann Heitland, Louise Hublitz, Mary Landahl, Mary McKell, Marisa Riggs-Ort, Heidi Robinson, and Phyllis Wolfskill.
