Holt Fundraiser Report
UPDATE: Link to pics
I attended the Mad Pizza fundraiser for former State Senator Jim Holt last night. This was not the $1,000 dollar a plate event, but the $100 a plate event that is in reach even for the working man (like me!). It was also $250 per family, and there were several large families there. The room was packed, well over 100 souls at a time and people were drifting in and out.
The event was very informal and low-key. "Holt for Senate" signs were in evidence, but no announcement that he was in, either here or at the big-money event. There likely be some sort of notification of where and when he will make an announcement on his intentions for 2010.
I don't know much about the big-money event. I got one brief phone call about it. They said there were 11 weather related cancellations (I guess at 1K a plate they are keeping pretty close track) but that several of those had committed to donate the money anyway. Take that 11 away from my earlier report based on oral commitments that they had a full house for the event.
I may have a source for pics. If so, I will post them.
