2019 Brown/Todd/Wolpe Award Presentation and Fundraiser

You're cordially invited to attend Kalamazoo County Democratic Party's biennial Brown/Todd/Wolpe Award Presentation & Fundraiser!


Saturday, October 12th

5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

@Niko's Landing in Comstock


Named after former State Representative Mary Brown, the late Congressman Paul Todd, and the late Congressman Howard Wolpe, this is a celebration to honor contributions made in the past and to connect with other Democrats to plan our future work.


The biggest fundraiser of the election cycle for the KCDP, the event features keynote speakers from the national, state, and local Democratic arenas, award presentations, live music, heavy appetizers, and a cash bar.


We are thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker will be Lavora Barnes, chair of the Michigan Democratic Party!


Live music will be provided by a much-loved local group, the Hackneyed Quips.


***Sponsorships now include tickets to the event and listing in our digital media. Contact Margy at (312) 848-0225***


Many thanks to our sponsors!
