The eighth annual SHORE Dinner, one of HCDP’s major fundraising events of the year, will be held Saturday, September 28, 6-10 p.m., at the Bay Watch Resort and Conference Center, overlooking the ocean, in North Myrtle Beach. The theme is Take a Stand for Democracy.
“This year’s SHORE Dinner, which celebrates and honors all those who work so hard to help elect Democratic candidates, promises to be extra exciting this year as we head into the 2020 election campaign,” said Barbara Hake, HCDP vice chair and fundraising chair.
“The 2020 election will be the most consequential election of our lifetime, perhaps even in the history of our nation,” said HCDP Chair Don Kohn. “HCDP has launched a concerted marketing campaign, ‘Take a Stand,’ which will be used for our advertising, marketing, voter registration, candidate support and fundraising initiatives.
“We believe that ‘Take a Stand’ concisely and effectively expresses exactly what Horry County Democrats and those who support our principles and views must do if we are to achieve success in the upcoming critically important local, county, state and national election,” Kohn said.
“To quote President Obama, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we‘ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We must unite into a coalition that will rise up to fight the menace that is Donald J. Trump and his lackies like Rep. Tom Rice and Sen. Lindsey Graham.”
“I can tell you that any one of our Democratic presidential candidates would be a vast improvement over the despicable con man who currently occupies the Oval Office. When it is over, we must unite behind our nominee and do everything humanly possible to win that election.
“We also must retain the House of Representatives and strengthen our majority there, sending Tom Rice packing, take control of the Senate and defeat Lindsey Graham.”
A primary objective through the election is to register as many Democratic voters as possible, and then make certain that those voters actually cast their ballots on election day.
“One big way that we can ‘Take a Stand,’” Kohn stressed, is to register ourselves, register our friends and neighbors, and then to vote for the candidates of our choice. Another way is to support HCDP’s fundraising initiatives, including our SHORE Dinner.”
The event will feature remarks by Democratic candidates and party officials, a sumptuous buffet dinner and plenty of fun and excitement. Efforts are underway to lock in at least one major presidential candidate as our keynote speaker.
