“MOLLY’S SHOW” postponed until a later date.

Your support for our Molly Ivins movie and fundraiser has been fantastic.  However, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Molly’s show to a later date after the current national health emergency is resolved. 

Thank you to our sponsors and those who donated to the silent auction.  We look forward to rescheduling this event when we can be safe, have fun and enjoy being Democrats together.

Your movie reservations, both paid and pledged, will be honored at the new date.

It’s time to Relay for Life with the Democrats’ Seven Dwarfs

“Wish for a Cure” is the Disney-based theme of Relay for Life of Kerr County 2020. Relay Night is April 17, 2020 at the Hill Country Youth Event Center.

Carl Hix will be our “Snow White” and everyone is invited to join our team of Seven Dwarfs with the slogan “Mining for a Cure.” Our team will be gathering donations at the March and April HCTDW luncheons or on line at Relay for Life of Kerr County. Help us keep our record of raising more than $1,000 every year for cancer care and research and let the community know that Democrats care.

Molly Ivins to Headline TDW Fundraiser on March 21

    Make plans now to be part of an exclusive showing of Raise Hell-The Life and Times of Molly Ivins at HCTDW’s 2020 Fundraiser on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 6 to 10 p.m. The lively documentary will bring Molly, her antics and her powerful political writing back to life for our enjoyment and inspiration.   HCTDW has arranged to show this brand-new documentary at the Guadalupe Basin Natural Resources Center, 125 Lehmann Drive (across SH 16 from Ken Stoepel Ford), with stadium seating in comfortable chairs and countertops for eating. And, there will be delicious movie fare to purchase and enjoy. Movie tickets are only $7! Food and drinks will be sold separately.   Along with the movie and great food, there will be opportunities to contribute to HCTDW’s PAC by purchasing unique items and experiences from the Silent Auction set up for your shopping delight in the movie hall.   And, the fun does not stop with the movie-we will also enjoy a redux of political bingo, with prizes and other games.   How can you help? First, become a sponsor of the Raise Hell film showing at the $100/$250/$500 or $1,000 level. Second, help us spread the word about this fabulous opportunity to watch Molly Ivins on the screen with all your Democratic friends. Third, donate a great item or experience (meal, tour, performance, etc.) for the silent auction.   Why fund-raise in March? So our PAC can support Democratic candidates, especially women, for state offices like State Representative, State Senator, Texas Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and State Board of Education. These are the campaigns that rely on grassroots support and funding to compete against Republicans in the General Election. After the March 3 Texas Primary, we will know who the Democratic Party candidates are, and they will need our support to keep their campaigns strong for the next seven months.     *******************************************************

Meet the 2020 Democratic Candidates Series

Rebecca Bell-Metereau
Texas State Board of Education District 5

Friday, January 17, 2020 
4:30-6:30 pm

Kerr County Democratic Party HQ
814 Main St. in Kerrville
Wine and appetizers will be served.

Rebecca is one of two Democratic candidates running for the Texas State Board of Education.
Because of her strong interest in making a difference in the education of our children, she is again seeking the Democratic nomination for District 5* in the March 3, 2020 Democratic Primary.

Rebecca is committed to taking “a fresh look at the skills and tools needed to solve 21st century problems, including global warming and environmental devastation, challenges to democracy, rampant worldwide income inequality, and political strife.” She is asking voters to “remember the slogan, ‘Think globally, act locally,’ as we tackle problems that affect not only the nation, but the entire globe. Now, more than ever, we have an opportunity to shape the future of Texas and the planet through our choices in public education.”
