Join us for CFD’s 48th Annual Gala on Sunday, April 2

Dear Friend of Community Free Democrats,

Please join us as a sponsor of CFD’s 48th Annual Gala on Sunday, April 2, from 1 to 4 p.m., at Arte Café, 106 West 73rd St. Our Gala is a highlight of the New York political calendar, where we break bread and chat with activists and leaders who make us proud to be Democrats working together for progressive values. Especially this year, consider it a much-deserved break from the marching and lobbying that’s required of us all in these unsettling times. Let’s gather to toast the resistance thus far, and to prepare for the city-wide campaigns later this year.

Each year, we honor those who make our city and community a better place. Our Outstanding Leadership Award will recognize the pivotal role Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is playing to thwart Donald Trump and the destructive Republican agenda. Marc L. Greenberg, Executive Diirector of the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing will receive the Michalski-Leutner Community Leadership Award.  Make The Road, will be honored with the Distinguished Community Service Award and our Leon Davis Labor Award will be given to the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators and received by its President Ernest Logan.

CFD leaders like Congressmember Jerry Nadler, State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer and Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal have contributed to the Upper West Side’s nationwide reputation for creative, outspoken Democratic leadership. CFD hopes to open the future to new, similarly-principled leaders.

The deadline to be listed as a sponsor is Wednesday, March 15, 2017. We look forward to seeing you on April 2nd.
