Political Rascals Presents: A Fundraiser for Stacey Abrams
September 6, 2018
SAVANNAH, GA - The Political Rascals Present: A Fundraiser for Stacey Abrams to be held at Forsyth Park Fountain, Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The event is open to the public and will be an opportunity for all Abrams supporters in the Savannah community to meet, network, rally, and raise funds for the future Governor of Georgia.
The inspiration for this event came from a local fundraising flyer for Gubernatorial Candidate Brian Kemp that asked for a $19,800 contribution for the “Chair” level. Over 51 local leaders from Chatham County have signed on, representing over half-a-million dollars of total campaign contributions for the Republican nominee. To put that figure into perspective, half of the households in Savannah get by on less than $37,108 per year.
In response, The Political Rascals are hosting a fundraiser for Abrams on the very same evening of the Kemp event. This event is financially accessible to all of the citizens of Savannah and a public opportunity to participate in the political process. Chairs of the event are asked to donate $19.80, 1000 times less than the $19,800 for the same level of participation in the Kemp event.
We seek to demonstrate that money should not guide our political decisions and that everyone, no matter your income, can be a part of our nation's political process. We seek to bring together people from all ages, backgrounds, and areas, united in a common belief that money does not and will not dictate our state’s next choice for Governor.
About The Political Rascals
The Political Rascals PAC was founded in Savannah, Georgia in 2018 by eleven friends who believe that Savannah needs to do so much more to address persistent inequality and political disempowerment. More than a year earlier we had connected through a shared passion for community organizing, self-care, and fine wine. We called ourselves the Political Rascals and committed ourselves to social, economic, and political change at our home in Savannah, Georgia and beyond. Political Rascals PAC, Inc., was created to better help us achieve that goal.

The Fundraiser for Stacey Abrams is paid for and coordinated by Political Rascals PAC, Inc. (politicalrascals.com) and not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
