Vice President Joe Biden to headline Michigan Democratic Party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner


A rare opportunity

The Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner is the biggest fundraising event of the year for most state Democratic Parties and Michigan is no exception. Named after Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, these events draw big name speakers and candidates for office.

This year, the Michigan Democratic Party (MDP) has scored a real coup: Vice President Joe Biden will be the keynote speaker. The dinner is on the evening of Saturday, April 20th at the Cobo Center in Detroit. It kicks off at 6 p.m. Tickets are available HERE.

When he announced that Vice President Biden would be speaking at the Jeff-Jack Dinner, MDP Chair Lon Johnson said, “As we continue to fight against policies that hurt the middle class in Michigan, Vice President Biden is the perfect person to really help fire up the troops for that battle. Whether it’s working to make sure that we all have access to health care or that the rights of women, workers and seniors are protected, Vice President Biden has always been a champion for the causes of everyday men and women in Michigan.”

It’s a rare opportunity to be able to hear the Vice President speak in such an intimate venue. Michigan Democrats won’t want to miss it. Get your tickets today before they’re gone!
