Democratic Jefferson/Jackson dinner is July 21; tickets are sold out

The annual LaPorte County Democratic Jefferson/Jackson Dinner will take place at the LaPorte VFW on Friday, July 21, and LaPorte County Democratic Chairman Jim Kimmel says the event is sold out with over 220 tickets sold.

The 2017 event is aimed at giving citizens of LaPorte County the opportunity to meet U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly, U.S. Congressman Pete Visclosky, and Indiana House Minority Speaker Scott Pelath.

The JJ Dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a “Meet and Greet” reception with appetizers followed by a meal and then speeches by the 3 guests.

“Too many times (even for a local event) the price for a ticket with a similar agenda have cost $100-plus per person,” Kimmel said in a press release. “We kept the ticket price at $25 and the event was sold out 4 weeks in advance. We could have sold another 100-plus tickets and that tells me people want to attend an event of this magnitude. We regret that we had to turn ticket requests down. We will make every effort for a larger venue in 2018 and still keep the price affordable.”
