Archive for the ‘Fund Raiser’
It’s at D.B. Cobb’s near the movie theater on Saturday, December 5th, 6-9.
The cost is $30, so it’s more a rally than a fund raiser.
The details are below:
A fund raiser for Republican State Rep. David McSweeney is being held tonight at Marzano’s Italian Restaurant.
The restaurant is located at 1501 S. Route 31 in McHenry.
The hours are from 5:30-7:30.
The invitation is below:
After the fund raiser, there is time to go to the Republican Debate Party at the Corkscrew Bistro in McHenry.
“Come and help our group of 35 precincts, which has been meeting to organize our efforts to educate and
promote our Republican candidates,” says the fund raiser.
The cost is $20 and it is being held at All Seasons Apply Orchard on Route 176 between Route 47 and Franklinville Road. 6-8:30 PM.
Other details are below:
When 2nd District County Board member Donna Kurtz sent out her Wednesday fund raiser invitation, it wasn’t really clear how to find its Park Place location.
It’s at the corner of Woodstock and Oak Streets between Route 176 and Crystal Lake Avenue.
In any event, the details are below:
It will be interesting to see if all three candidates for McHenry County Sheriff in 2014 show up, as they did at Saturday’s Nunda Township GOP Picnic.
The date is October 4th, a Thursday, Robert and Anna May Miller’s Annual Wine & Cheese Reception.
Anna May is running for re-election to the McHenry County Board in District 1, while her husband Bob is running for re-election for Algonquin Township Road Commissioner.
The price is $35 a person or $60 a couple.
The event will be held at 1409 East Main Street in Cary.
A friend of McHenry County Blog has forwarded an invitation to Democrat State Rep. Jack Franks’ September 29th fundraising breakfast at Donley’s Wild West Town.
The Jesse White Tumblers will perform.
As usual Franks provides a list of those who have agreed to be on his Host Committee.
Unlike last year, GOP Sheriff Keith Nygren is not on the list.
But Woodstock Mayor Brain Sager still is.
He’s there with Chicago Democratic Party Ward Committeeman and Alderman Ed Burke.
Last year, such sponsorship was less significant than this year.
Then, Sager was only a minor cog in the McHenry County Republican Party, a Precinct Committeeman from Greenwood Township Precinct 6.
The mayoral post is non-partisan.
Sure, I’ve written that I believe he wishes to run for Franks’ seat when Franks runs for something else, but his official role is that a GOP Precinct Committeeman.
This year, Sager
- was recruited to run as an Alternative Delegate by State Treasurer Dan Rutherford,
- was elected and
- is just returning from the National Republican Convention.
Looking for Republican County Board member candidates, I see far fewer than last year.
Randy Donley, who is retiring this year is listed.
There is a listing for “Bob & Judi Martens.” I do not know if that is the District 4 candidate listed on the ballot as “Robert Martens Sr.”

If you would like to help State Senator Pam Althoff raise money to pay what amounts to a leadership assessment of $20,000 to help elect Republican State Senators elsewhere in Illinois where it is harder to raise money that here, September 13th is the date to save.
In many of the marginal districts which Republicans win, there is no tradition of giving cash to Republican candidates.
The event will be at the McHenry Country Club from 5:30-7. The cost is $50 a person.
