Silver Democrats of Fort Bend and the Suburban Southwest Texas Democratic Women have joined together to honor the longest serving female and African American in the Texas House of Representatives, Senfronia Thompson.
This will be the major fundraiser of the election season for both groups. Proceeds will go to the 2012 election, specifically Get Out the Vote efforts. We encourage you to be part of this event to elect Democrats in November.
Sponsors will each have the opportunity to place campaign/business materials at every place setting at the event. We expect between 200 and 250 guests. Candidates not purchasing a sponsorship will be permitted to place their campaign materials on a table at the entrance.
Sponsorships are available at the following levels:
$5,000 – Obama Democrat. You will receive two tables (16 tickets) with your name prominently displayed on the tables and on the front page of the program. Each of your guests will receive an Obama ’12 cap, bumper stickers and buttons. You will also be allowed to give a 5-minute speech at the event.
