Dear Payne County Democrats,

As you may know, the Diamond Donkey Gala is our annual fundraising event that celebrates the achievements and contributions of our party and our community. The theme of this year’s gala is “Gratitude & Growth."

We want to express our gratitude to our loyal supporters and donors and share our vision and plans for the growth of our party here in the county and Oklahoma.

The gala will feature a plated dinner, a live auction, and a keynote speech by Meredith Woodruff, one of the first women in United States history to direct major national security initiatives worldwide.

The event will be held at the ConocoPhilips OSU Alumni Center in Click Hall. We expect to have over 100 guests, including local leaders and elected officials. Seats are limited so buy your tickets below ASAP! Also, if you would like information on mailing in your check and RSVP, please respond to this email or reach out to for instructions.

See you there!

Warm regards,

Chairman Justin Worley
Payne County Democrats
