Sheldon Whitehouse, Angel Taveras, Rhoda Perry, Josh Miller, Maria Cimini, Edith Ajello, Paula Hodges and … Rudy Cheeks, together under one roof? It’s an all-star lineup of local progressive Democrats, and for good reason … it’s the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats Movers and Shakers fundraiser this Friday at Waterplace Restaurant from 7 to 9 pm.
Let us know you’re going and get some more details at the Facebook event here.
Cheeks, one half of the legendary Phillipe and Jorge duo for the Providence Phoenix, will emcee the evening and Senator Whitehouse will present awards to many of the others.
Tickets are $40, or $75 for couples. “This fundraiser will directly support our continued efforts to work on getting progressive legislative actions passed and help elect more like minded individuals to our General Assembly such as the tireless activists we are honoring this year.”
And if that isn’t enough reason to party with your most progressive friends this Friday night: cash bar and great appetizers and the music of Barbara Slater & Friends Trio.
