2012 UCDW’s Annual Holidaze Victory Party
Monday December 10, 2012
5:30 PM to 8 PM
Join Ulster County Democratic Women for our Holidaze Victory Party. This year’s guest of honor is Cecilia Tkaczyk, whose too-close-to-call race for NYS Senate is still being counted. We will also honor some of our women veterans from Samaritan Village of Ellenville.
Our beautiful Gift Baskets will be available by silent auction. We’ll also be collecting non-perishable foods for Queen’s Galley Kitchen. We will collect items for Samaritan Village of Ellenville women veterans—their holiday wish list includes Assorted Board games (monopoly, scrabble, etc), Individual book reading lights, Shop Rite Gift Certificates, Womens slippers, Womens Robes, and Artwork for their room. See flyer to learn more about program.
Reasons to celebrate as the 2012 Election proved women make a difference:
- Women made up 54% of the electorate in the November election.
- Women gained 3 seats in the senate bringing us to a record 20 seats starting in 2013.
- Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Hawaii elected their first female senators: Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, and Mazie Hirono.
- Senator-elect Baldwin is the first openly gay US Senator.
- New Hampshire elected an all female Congressional delegation and Governor.
- Tulsi Gabbard and Tammy Duckworth became the first women with combat experience to be elected to Congress. Duckworth, who lost both her legs in Iraq, faced super PAC money and outrageous slander from her right-wing opponent.
The Holidaze Victory Party is Monday, December 10, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8 PM, at Dem Headquarters, 32 John St. Kingston.
Suggested $10 donation includes refreshments and appetizers. It’s a great time to renew your UCDW membership for 2013. RSVP Gail: (845) 658-8055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
