CVPPAC Fall Fund-Raiser (Fresno CA22)
September 7 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$30
An important source of funding for the CVPPAC comes from the Fall Fund-Raiser, which will take place this year on Sept. 7 at 6 p.m. at Pat Wolk’s beautiful backyard (6661 N. Forkner Ave. in Fresno). As always, there will be music, food, drink, a presentation about our winning strategy for upcoming elections and plenty of time to enjoy interacting with fellow progressives.
Confirmed speakers at this year’s event are Patsy Montgomery speaking on the attacks on Planned Parenthood; Jessica Smith-Bobadilla speaking on immigration and border issues; and Kieshuan White, a high school student who is monitoring air quality to provide evidence for the differences in life expectancy between different areas of town. Why is there, for example, a 25-year difference in life expectancy between northeast Fresno residents and southwest Fresno residents?
CVPPAC endorsed candidates Andrew Janz for Fresno Mayor and Tyler Maxwell for Fresno City Council, District 4 have been added to the speakers list.
This event is free to current CVPPAC members and $30 for non-members. There will be food, drink and music by Lance Canales and the Flood. Here is what Bruce Sylvester of Goldmine Magazine had to say about Canales’s music: “His rough-hewn voice lets us know that there’s a darkness at the edge of the fertile fruit fields in his native San Joaquin Valley in central California.”
