There is so much to enjoy at this event—a three-course meal, a silent auction, your favorite home-grown candidates and elected officials, games, prizes, awards, an inspiring keynote speaker (see below) —all while supporting the Boulder County Democratic Party's mission: to elect leaders and institute policies that reflect our Democratic values and work to create the kind of world we want. This only happens with your continued support, and with the current administration threatening the progress we've made together, this work is more important than ever.
New and Exciting This Year!
- VIP Reception - Start the evening right with a free drink, hors d'ouevres, and one-on-one time with our keynote speaker, Amanda Litman (see below to learn more about her).
- Online Pre-Auction - This year we are starting bidding on the Silent Auction online a week before the dinner! Anyone who registers for the auction (coming soon) can bid, but the final 1 1/2 hours of bidding will be available only Truman Dinner attendees.
- National Anthem - Former professional opera singer Dan Burgin, who masquerades as a customer experience consultant by day, will appear in the persona of his true self, a lyric tenor, and perform the national anthem for the Truman dinner. Before assuming the role of a humble customer experience consultant, Dan performed professionally throughout the US at venues including The Dallas Opera, the Ft Worth Symphony, the Santa Fe Opera, the Texas Opera Theater, the San Antonio Opera, and The Eugene Opera in Oregon, among many other Opera companies and professional organizations in a variety of roles and apprenticeships.
