Recipe for a successful Fundraiser: 3 Star speakers, 80 motivated voters, and a whole lot of sugar

Here’s a tip for bakers getting ready for any upcoming dessert auction: add some bourbon. A Jack Daniels Bread Pudding and whiskey sauce was the top-selling item, with the most spirited bidding, during the first LD13 Raise the Dough dessert auction. More than 80 West Valley Democrats and friends gathered on the patio of the Old Pueblo restaurant in Litchfield Park on May 11, 2019, for lively conversation, tacos and the right to bid on one of 28 desserts donated by 20 LD13 members and friends.

Spurred by the lively guest auctioneers – former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kelly Fryer, Maricopa County Democratic Party Chair Steve Slugocki and Maricopa County Democratic Party Executive Director Maritza Miranda Saenz – the delectable desserts were sold for more than $2,000. In total, the event raised $3,745 to support district work in the upcoming election cycle. And that Jack Daniels delight? It went for $160.
