Make plans now to join the Van Buren County Democratic Party on Sunday July 14, 2024 at the beautiful Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven, MI for our first annual Van Buren County Democratic Party “Protect and Defend” Gala Fundraiser! We all know how important the 2024 election is, and you have the opportunity to make a difference now by attending the Gala and showing your support for the Democratic Party.

Event registration opens at 4:30pm where you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy the museum grounds. The evening festivities start at 5:00pm with a cocktail hour where you can enjoy a drink and Hors d’oeuvres while visiting with candidates and elected officials. Dinner will begin at 6:30 with vegetarian and gluten free options available, served with a salad and scrumptious dessert. Our program of guest speakers will commence as dinner concludes and will feature several Democrats currently serving in office as well as seeking additional terms. Our guests include: State Representative Joey Andrews, Candidate for U.S. Congress to represent the 4th District Jessica Swartz, and current Michigan Supreme Court Justice Kyra Harris Bolden. Other “high-profile” Democrats will also be featured. Every ticket holder will take home a keepsake from the event, as well as wonderful memories and photos with guests and one another.

Single tickets start at $100, and you can show your support at a variety of donor levels up to being an event table sponsor.
