Join us for the 8th annual
We're excited to announce that on Saturday, August 12th, the Forever the Free State Gala is returning to the Overland Park Convention center again this year. We're thrilled to welcome all of you in person for our event.
U.S. Representative Sharice Davids, Kansas Lt. Gov David Tolan, and Johnson County Chairman Mike Kelly will be there to share insights and inspiration. We hope you can join us and help make our 2023 Gala another great success.
The annual Gala is our primary fundraiser and we look forward to your continued support. Your generous donations keep our local office open year-round, support our candidate’s campaigns, and fund our get-out-the-vote efforts. Because of you we’ve made great strides but we have more battles ahead. Let’s join together on August 12th, to continue building the Democratic Party in Johnson County!
