Approximately one hundred individuals attended a fundraiser in Warrensburg for the Johnson County Democratic Club
and Democratic Central Committee on Saturday evening.
The Johnson County Democratic Club and Democratic Central Committee held a fundraiser this evening at the Warrensburg Community Center. The premise is simple – charge admission for a potluck “Festival of Soups” and breads, auction desserts and a bit of political memorabilia, and give Democrats an excuse and opportunity to get together and raise money in preparation for the next election cycle. The overhead is low. The facility rental is nominal. Volunteers make their favorite soups, breads, and desserts. Those paying admission are issued three tickets which they use to vote for their favorites in the three categories. The competition can get fierce – at times there can be trash talking and lobbying for votes. There have even been rumors that some competitors bought extra admission tickets so they could stuff ballot boxes.
This annual event raises a significant amount of seed money to help the club and committee operate for the coming year and election cycle.
