The Frank & Bethine Church Gala is the signature event for the Idaho Democratic Party. Now entering its 22nd year, the Gala attracts hundreds of Democrats from every corner of the state. The Gala is the capstone to a day filled with trainings and workshops for Idaho Democrats and is a memorable event for all who participate.
We are honored to announce that this year’s featured speaker will be Jennifer Granholm, who was the first female governor of Michigan and helped guide the state’s automotive industry through the crisis of 2008-2010 during her service. She left public office after two terms due to term limits. She now holds teaching and advisory positions on clean energy and climate and is a senior energy adviser to Hillary Clinton.

It is time to start thinking about the outstanding woman or women of the IDWC that you think are deserving of consideration for this year’s Dottie Stimpson and Young Distinguished Woman Awards.
The Dottie Stimpson award “honors a woman who has demonstrated perseverance, persistence, patience, passion, commitment and leadership such as Dottie Stimpson has over the years as she founded the Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus. Dottie’s work on behalf of the Democratic Party and the Women’s Caucus has been significant, and in this way we honor her loyalty, energy, and support.”
The Young Distinguished Woman Award (age 18-35) honors one of our hard working and outstanding, committed Young Democratic Women.
The deadline for nominations is January 30,2016.
