2020 Bartlett-Gruening Dinner Postponed Indefinitely

In order to do our part to flatten the curve, Tongass Democrats Chair Edric Carrillo has indefinitely postponed our main annual fundraiser, the Bartlett-Gruening Dinner.

Tickets to the dinner are typically $100, and proceeds from this event have funded many candidates across the state in past years. Your donation now would be extremely meaningful for efforts to elect Democrats to the State Legislature, as well as those running up-ticket.

Please consider visiting our Act Blue donation page and making a donation.
