Dear Supporter of the Wake County Young Democrats,

As an observer of the political process, I do not have to remind you of the excitement generated within the Democratic Party in the past 12 months since the Wake County Young Democrats appealed to you for sponsorship of our annual P. R. Latta Award reception dinner.

In 2009, we honored Mrs. Nancy Looper for her life-long commitment to the values that define our party. As Young Democrats, we are charged with preserving the foundation built by past Democrats like Roosevelt, Truman, Sanford, and Hunt. We are the foot soldiers in our party’s electoral efforts.

This year's award goes to Joanne Casey to honor her for her work for the party.

The P. R. Latta dinner is the Wake County Young Democrats annual fundraiser. In 2009, profits received from this dinner contributed to our efforts in electing Democrats and turning NC Blue by conducting phone banks, canvasses, and literature drops.

Currently, we are engaged in assisting local candidates in their race towards November and increasing our active membership roles in order to provide Democrats with a base of support this fall. We are asking that you show your thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Joanne Casey by contributing as a sponsor of the P. R, Latta dinner.

--Erica Porter, President, Wake County Young Democrats
