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.

View photos from the event here.  

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.
