Since this blog's inception, I've called for party organizations, campaigns, candidates, or groups to send me any announcements, invitations, or anything else they wish to publicize. I've issued several pleas, and had an open invitation for submissions in the sidebar until it became apparent that no one was interested in this.
To my dismay and surprise, no one's taken advantage of it until now.
If enough people take advantage of this opportunity, I'll create a page dedicated to current events and announcements and link to it from this page.
Today's head's up is:
Sen. Mike Jacobs will be hosting a fundraising reception at Johnny's Italian Steakhouse, 1300 River Drive Moline, at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 23rd.
As the announcement states,
"The public is invited to attend, at $40 per person, and tickets will be available at the door. There will be heavy hors d’oevres, raffles for several prizes and a cash bar.For further info, contact: J.P. Jacobs @ 309/230-1695.
The new state senator is carrying on a successful tradition started by his father, former State Sen. Denny Jacobs, who hosted an annual community event at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse for several years.
"This is intended to be a fun family event and we welcome folks from throughout the 36th District to this reception," said Sen. Mike Jacobs.
