WASHINGTON - RightNOW Woman PAC is hosting their second major fundraising event this evening, where organizers will announce the launch of a candidate interview series that will provide a distinctive way to learn more about RightNOW Women PAC’s endorsed candidates.
Tonight’s event, hosted at DLA Piper, features a “Spring Derby” theme. Guests are being encouraged to “pony up,” wear hats, sip mint juleps, play tailgate toss games and place “bets” on fundraising teams. Winners will receive roses at the event.
“There are so many fundraisers for Washingtonians to choose from, so we’re challenging ourselves to keep our events fresh, fun and ultimately feature moments that will appeal to all generations of both men and women,” said RightNOW Women PAC Advisor Marlene Colucci. “If you’re a younger supporter, you can come to this event for just $25 - this is our way of making sure that younger activists can get involved in electing more Republican women to Congress.”
The launch of the the PAC’s candidate interview series will coincide with tonights’ event, with the first interview to be posted on the RightNOW Women PAC website at 6:30 p.m. The Q & A with Tricia Pridemore (running for GA-11) will feature Tricia’s views on topics including the biggest challenges facing young women in America today, what it means to be a Republican woman, and Tricia’s top beauty tip for a long day on the campaign trail. Readers might be surprised to find out what Tricia thinks is an “ideal Friday night” and by who some of her role models are.
“The interviews were inspired by those featuring celebrities in women’s magazines,” explained RightNOW Women PAC Founder Brittany Thune Lindberg. “This approach will give supporters and voters a chance to get to know these candidates on a more human level, and we think it’s important for younger women, in particular, to get to know these leaders as women, not just as politicians.”
Interviews will be promoted exclusively through social media and found only on the RightNOW Women PAC website.
