Dear Fellow Democrats,

It is time once again for the hard-working Alachua County Democrats to party! Especially after all we have been through this year, we need to celebrate. Now we are here, we are moving forward, and we will win. Dress up and come join us for the 23rd annual Lawton Chiles Gala on October 3rd, 2021, at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center Gainesville, 1714 SW 34th Street.

The Legendary Silent Auction will begin at 5:00 PM, and dinner will be served at 7:00 PM. A band will provide lively background music while we gather and connect. Some of us may even fell inclined to dance.

It is our hope that you find the featured speakers (TBA) inspiring, and that you enjoy the opportunity to meet our Democratic local candidates and leaders. Proceeds from the event support the operation of our 8th Avenue office, and our local political campaigns. This year we anticipate 500 attendees, and your participation is important for all of us.

Also, consider becoming a sponsor of this special event with a larger donation to maximize our impact in this critical time. A registration and sponsorship form is included for your review.

Individual tickets: $85.00
Student tickets: $45.00
Table of Sponsorship: $800
Additional sponsorship levels attached
