About the Dinner
Each year the Kootenai Democrats host a regional gathering of Democrats. This annual event is the most formal and widely known event offered by our organization. As part of this event, the Kootenai Democrats nominate members of our community for the Art Manley Lifetime Achievement Award which is presented at the Dinner. The nominees may not necessarily live lives that have achieved Art Manley’s exact accomplishments, but have served this community and the Democratic Party with the spirit, determination and personal ethics that work in concert with the principles of democracy. The dinner features a key note speaker and is a primary fundraiser for the local party.
Spring Forth Social (Spring)
Democrats Spring Forth is a spring fundraising event to raise funds for party organizing and campaign support. It typically features food, along with a silent and live auctions, no host bar and music. It is an opportunity to meet and build relationships with fellow Democrats. It is also an early opportunity during election years to see who is running for office in local and state wide elections.
