The Grand Gala – a celebration of the upcoming Democrat wave

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, NC — It was an honor to have Secretary Elaine Marshall as the keynote speaker at the Democratic 2018 Gala. She gave a dynamic empowering speech that moved the audience to a standing ovation. Marshall reached out to each table to introduce herself and her husband – a nice touch and certainly exemplified her connection to the people of Rutherford County.

Gracie Vess did an amazing job on singing the National Anthem a cappella. Bruce’s Fabulous Foods was outstanding on the catering serving baked salmnon and roasted chicken along with his signature banana cake.

Congratulations to the gala team who hosted a warm friendly gathering with a sense of style. Thanks to all the candidates who showed up as well. Go Blue Wave!
