    DAI Fundraising Extravaganza Event 6

    Join us for our next four Fundraising Extravaganza Events of 2021!

    We are pleased to announce the program of our remaining fundraising events for 2021.  We thank all of the generous donors who have supported our first four events this year.  To achieve our annual fundraising goal, we still need your continued support to prepare for the 2022 mid-term elections through voter registration and outreach.

    Your contribution will help us get out the vote in Italy and ensure that we maintain and expand our Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.

    After the success of our first hybrid virtual/in-person event in July from Florence, we will continue to organize events in different venues to build community for each local chapter or precinct.

    Our fundraising events showcase the best of Italy: art, culture, wine and la dolce vita!

    Season ticket holders are welcome to attend each event either online or in-person.  If you have not yet purchased a season ticket, we have a special offer: 30 EUR donation for the next four events instead of 75 EUR!

    Donations for individual events are still 25 EUR for each in-person event (this includes a drink & snacks) or 15 EUR for each online event.

    Please provide your email address so we can send a Zoom link the day before the event.

    For in-person event donors: we will send you the address of the venue as soon as we receive your donation.

    For season ticket holders: please email us if you wish to attend the in-person events [email protected]

    Arrivederci!
