Diamond Donkey Gala

Each spring the Payne County Democrats will host the Annual Diamond Donkey Gala & Silent Auction.  This fundraiser not only provides a significant portion of our budget each year, but also serves as a checkpoint as we organize for the elections occurring that year. In 2018, there are many major elections including governor, lieutenant governor, supreme court retention, state question 788, and electing the state representatives in charge of redrawing Oklahoma’s electoral districts. Diamond Donkey puts us in position to organize for and support our democratic candidates and issues at all levels of government.


  • WHEN:  Thursday, April 26, 2018, 6:00pm – 9:00 pm
  • WHERE:  Meditations Banquet Facility (1205 N Country Club Rd, Stillwater)

It will be a night to celebrate, enjoy wonderful music, partake in great food, and hear an interesting speaker.  Music will be provided by a local musical artist. The Keynote speakers in the past have included governors, legislators, and non-profit leaders. Last year, David Blatt, Director of the Oklahoma Policy Institute, was our keynote speaker.
