Our first-ever Blue Gala was a huge success

kennedy1.JPGThe Miami Dems are proud and excited to announce that our first-ever Blue Gala held Sunday, November 17th at the Biltmore was a completely sold-out event — and an enormous success.

A packed house of Democrats and elected officials from across Miami gathered to hear Ed Schultz receive the 2013 Progressive Champion award and Congressman Joe Kennedy deliver the keynote address.

But the event was first and foremost a celebration of Democrats in Miami-Dade — of all we have accomplished and all we are going to achieve together. We honored 5 outstanding Democratic leaders: Congresswoman Carrie P. Meek, party leader Stephen Bittel, trailblazer Representative David Richardson, legislative champion Senator Oscar Braynon, and rising star Jon Adrabi. 

Most importantly, we came together as a community with a simple purpose: to start turning Florida blue from the bottom up.

Thank you for all your support of the Democratic Party in Miami-Dade and this amazing annual event. We are going into 2014 stronger than ever before — and we couldn't have done it without all of you.
