Calling all DC Metro Kossacks - especially those of you who volunteered in Arlington and Falls Church. Please come join us! Party where you worked!
A number of NoVa Democrats felt that a grassroots campaign needed a somewhat more affordable and "homey" way to celebrate our victory than the more formal events going on during inauguration week. So we got together and organized a GRASSROOTS GALA for Sunday, January 18th to let us party and re-connect with the people we worked with so hard this fall. Plus it's a food-bank fundraiser!
We've almost sold out by word of mouth through our e-mails lists and channels, but I'd like to open it up to Metro Area Kossacks who may be looking for a fun, relatively low-cost ($50) event. Flyer below the fold.
You made it happen – so here’s a celebration for YOU!
