Brats, Brews and Boogie for Cheryl Turpin, VA Dist 7

September 8 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Sister District at our Brats, Brews and Boogie Party!

Enjoy cold beer, grilled bratwurst, and live “swamp funk” music by D’Amphibians as we raise money for Cheryl Turpin, Virginia Senate District 7.

There’s a blue wave that is still rising, getting higher and higher – and we can all help take back control of our government from the hands of the Republicans – and have a really good time doing so!

You are invited to our Brats, Brews and Boogie Party, with live music by D’Amphibians. D’Amphibians has been serving up its unique brand of swamp funk to Bay Area audiences for more than 20 years. For a little taste of the band’s music, check out damphibians.com.

This promises to be a great evening! BBQ, beer, music and dancing – what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

RSVP here and Donate Here to reserve your space.

 

The event is a fundraiser for Cheryl Turpin, current House Delegate for VA85, who is running to flip the Virginia Senate district 7 seat blue. If Cheryl Turpin wins in November, Democrats likely will take control of the chamber: we will need to flip just one other Senate seat to do so. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Taking control of the Virginia legislature will mean Democrats will reverse Republican gerrymandering and draw the electoral maps which will govern the hundreds of Virginia state and US House races throughout the next decade. It also would almost certainly mean Virginia will (finally) enact gun control legislation, will increase the unlivable $7.25 minimum wage, will protect reproductive rights and, probably, will become the 38th state to ratify the ERA.

We’re asking for two donations for this event:
$20 – $40pp donation (sliding scale) via ActBlue** to Cheryl Turpin’s’ campaign plus
$20pp cash donation paid at the event, to cover event costs

*The event will be at the home of a Sister District Captain; the address will be emailed to you after you RSVP.
**ActBlue donations in advance are preferred, but checks will be accepted at the event.
