KEEP IT BLUE
The Democratic Club of Ventura's inaugural summer fundraiser Sunday, June 30, had something for everyone! The sold out event's 210 attendees were greeted and checked in by a team of amazing volunteers and then joined a room full of energy and enthusiasm as community members and elected representatives met and discussed important issues.
WE HAD A DRONE!

Enthusiastic opening remarks and introductions by 2nd Vice Chair/Fundraising Chair Diana Sparagna and DCV President Matty Park started the program followed immediately by Master of Ceremonies, California State Democratic Party Chairman, Eric C.

From Ventura Mayor Erik Nasarenko to our keynote speakers, Salud Carbajal and Julia Brownley the crowd stayed engaged and excited to be there.
