The Miami-Dade Democratic Party set records for fundraising and attendance at its annual Blue Gala this weekend, illustrating a new level of energy for Democrats in Florida’s biggest county one year before the presidential election. Presented under the theme, “It’s on Us,” the gala’s keynote speaker was Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and featured Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried. Seven community and elected leaders were honored, highlighted by former Miami Dade College president Eduardo Padron receiving the local party's lifetime achievement award.
The Gala raised over $360,000, a record for the local party. For context, that's more than double the amount the Miami-Dade Democratic Party raised at its gala year ago. With more than 550 attendees, it was also the largest gala the Miami-Dade Democrats have ever presented.
