By Staff | Jan 26, 2016

This Saturday, Jan. 30, The Democratic Party of Lee County will host its annual Gala – Winter Extravaganza, at the Harborside Event Center in Downtown Fort Myers, featuring keynote speaker, Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Alan Grayson.

The gala is the largest fundraising event each year hosted by the Democratic Party, and this year features emcee Desmond Meade, state director of the Live Free Campaign. The annual event is a celebration for local supporters and activists featuring dinner, dancing, silent auction and lively speakers.

“We’re excited to feature ‘Congressman With Guts’, Mr. Grayson, and Mr. Meade this year, both very entertaining speakers,” said Yoseph Tedros, the chairman of the Democratic Party of Lee County in a prepared statement. “Anyone who’s heard or knows Mr. Meade, knows he’s a delight with a rich sense of humor, and Congressman Grayson is sure to be a thrill for his always gutsy take on Washington politics and straight to the point opinions with a touch of humor.”
