Thank you for a great 2014 Eastside Dinner!

On behalf of the 2014 Eastside Democratic Dinner organizing committee, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the continuation of this great joint event to benefit the Democratic district organizations of the Eastside.

We had a great turnout this year and actually sold out of our seating a couple of days before the event! We were able to accommodate all walk-ups, thankfully, due to the generosity of several Democratic activists who had purchased tickets in advance but were not able to attend. We are also grateful to our speakers: Dave Ross, our master of ceremonies, U.S. Representatives Suzan DelBene and Adam Smith, Governor Jay Inslee, and State Party Chair Jaxon Ravens.

We were honored to be joined by State House Speaker Frank Chopp, State Representatives Roger Goodman, Ross Hunter, Cyrus Habib, and Tana Senn, State Senator David Frockt, and candidates Matt Isenhower and Jason Ritchie.

We ate very well, thanks to the talented kitchen staff at Metropolitan Market, who prepared a delicious dinner buffet for us, and we raffled off a total of nine gift baskets with the help of Dave Ross. Congratulations to our winners!

We look forward to seeing you next year for the 2015 Eastside Democratic Dinner.
