True Blue Gala

Our Annual True Blue Gala, formerly known as the Jefferson-Jackson Gala, is a fundraising event held since 2007 when our party invites a leading or influential Democratic party activist to speak to our community. This is also a fundraiser for our committee so that we can support our candidates who are running for statewide office, Congress and General Assembly.
