House Parties Smashing Success

Thanks Jan, Larry, our House Party hosts, Kerry H. and the dynamic duo of Trilling and Tarsinos,

Wow, what a fantastic weekend for Kerry up in the 9th Congressional district! Seven house parties were held last Saturday with almost four hundred party-goers in attendance (Rogers Park, Wilmette, Evanston, Skokie) Hosts raised over $26,000 in checks and Kerry Core donations.

Party-goers were treated to an action packed evening. Besides the conference call with John Kerry, US Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin visited the house parties to remind people about what is at stake in this election. I can’t tell you how great it is to live in an area where the elected officials like Jan and Larry help to nurture grassroots activism. Guests were also treated to Robin Trilling and Thali Tarsinos performing a hilarious political song parodies routine. Guests at Ruth Krugly’s house in Wilmette also heard Kerry Hall (aka young JK) speak. Thanks again to all the speakers and performers for braving the rainy weather in order to dash from house to house.

Be sure to congratulate our party hosts for the incredible job they did this weekend.

Rogers Park: Peter Norman and Deborah Newmark, Ashish & Colleen Sen & Andrea Raila
Wilmette: Ruth Krugly and Darryl Davidson
Evanston: Gary Isaac and Toni Gilpin, Susan and Tim Schell, Judy Freman and Rennie Heath
Skokie: Jennifer O’Neil
