Join us for the 2018 Truman Dinner!

We invite you to join us for an inspiring and social evening that supports the vital work of the Boulder County Democratic Party, and celebrates our members and volunteers.

WHEN: June 1, 2018 @ 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm
WHERE: Plaza Convention Center, 1850 Industrial Circle, Longmont, CO 80501
COST: $95.00 (VIP Reception +$30 )
REGISTER: Click here to register

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.

Truman dinner

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.
  • Dan BurginNational 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.

  • Sponsorship

    Make a difference with an additional donation to the Truman Dinner and your local Democratic Party through a sponsorship!

    In this critical election year we can use your financial help more than ever. Because we’re an all volunteer organization, funding goes directly to:
    • Candidate Assistance — we provide meeting space, local outreach, and candidate forums to bring voters and candidates together
    • Facilitating outreach and inclusion in our communities and getting out the vote
    • Strong party infrastructure — although Caucus and Assembly are mandated at the State level, there is no funding attached…so BoCoDems pay for and execute them
    • We are the only county in Colorado that publishes a Voter Guide with information on candidates in two languages for citizens to use
    • We are the first and only county in the State with online caucus registration which helped save time and money — and this capability was donated to us


    Caucus Level ($500) - 2 VIP tickets to Dinner (includes pre-dinner VIP reception with Speaker), your company or name in the program & slideshow
    Assembly Level ($1000) - 2 VIP tickets to Dinner (includes pre-dinner VIP reception with Speaker), your company or name in the program & slideshow, Keynote Speaker’s autographed book, & 1/2 page ad in the program
    Primary Level ($1500) - 4 VIP tickets to Dinner (includes pre-dinner VIP reception with Speaker), your company or name in the program & slideshow, Keynote Speaker’s autographed book & 1/2 page ad in the program
