We put the “party” in Oregon WFP

April 11th, 2012 by dlombardi

For a brief, but fantastic moment last Thursday evening, an impromptu dance battle between mayoral candidates Eileen Brady, Charlie Hales, Jefferson Smith, and Cameron Whitten broke out at our annual fundraiser – “A Major Party for the Minor Party.” It all started when Cameron Whitten grabbed the mic challenging the candidates to a dance off, and they all rose to the challenge.

We’ve got video proof.

Watch here and then vote for the best mayoral candidate dance moves.

We also put on quite an event last Thursday evening at Holocene in Portland:

  • We set a goal of $10,000, but with your help, we blew that goal away and raised over $14,000!!!
  • Over 250 people joined in the fun.
  • The State Labor Commissioner, Brad Avakian gave an impassioned fundraising pitch.
  • Multiple state legislators attended and donated to the WFP.
  • The mayoral candidates took a swing at our Piñata.

Bottom line, it was an evening we’ll never forget.

Well maybe the mayoral candidates might want to – but in just one night, 20,000 people watched this video, proving yet again that the internet never forgets!

(Note: This vote does not constitute an official endorsement of any candidate.  The Oregon Working Families Party endorses candidates by evaluating them on the issues we care about most: family wage jobs, quality health care, and sensible economic policy that benefits Oregon’s working families.)
