Macoupin County Democrats invite party supporters and activists to participate a “virtual unity” event from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 24 via the Zoom remote meeting platform.
“This is our 11th unity event to bring together Democrats and their supporters prior to the Nov. 3 General Election,” said Pam Monetti, Macoupin County Democrat Party Chair. “In the past, we’ve hosted an annual Unity Dinner but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic makes large gatherings of people inadvisable. We want to support our party and our candidates for this most critical election, but we are determined to do it in a way that is responsible and safe for everyone.”
Tickets for the event are $25 per person and can be purchased by going to venmo@Pam-Monetti or mailing a check to P.O. Box 195, Bunker Hill, IL 62014. Each ticket holder will receive the information they need to access the 2020 Virtual Unity Democratic Event via Zoom as well as a special face mask to commemorate the event.
The event will feature guest speakers, appearances by Democratic candidates and presentation of the Labor Award and the Demuzio Chair Award.
“While this event will look and feel different from past unity events, we hope Democrats and party supporters from Macoupin County and neighboring counties will support our efforts to energize voters this year,” Monetti said. “Macoupin County has a long and proud history of producing notable Democrat office holders who have served and continue to serve at all levels of local and state government. This year more than ever we believe it is critical to get our message out to local voters as they prepare to cast their ballots.”
In addition to tickets to participate in the event, sponsorships are available at $500, $250, $100 or $50.
“In another year we hope the pandemic will be behind us and we can again gather in person for a traditional Unity Dinner,” Monetti said. “This year, however, we hope to support our candidates and our party by hosting a virtual event that will ensure the safety of our candidates and their supporters. We look forward to seeing everyone online on Oct. 24.”
