Get Out The Vote Gala
The Voter Network and Mainstream Coalition, along with Honorary Co-Chairs Cyd Slayton & Madeleine McDonough, invite you to the 2021 Get Out The Vote Gala on October 12, 2021. Presented by our Champion Sponsor, Donna Gould Cohen.
5:30 pm Cocktail Reception | 7 pm Dinner & Program
For over 20 years we have hosted one of the largest annual nonpartisan social gatherings of elected officials, candidates, and voting rights advocates in Kansas. This year’s event, Get Out The Vote Gala will be held on October 12 in person at 5:30 pm or 7 pm virtual.
With vaccinations readily available, we are planning a limited in-person event with a virtual option. I hope you’ll be able to join us either at the Overland Park Convention Center, or from your couch! We’ll kick-off the evening with our popular extended cocktail reception and silent auction followed by dinner and an inspiring program with Academy Award-winning, two-time Sundance Film Festival director, Kevin Willmott, and a tribute to our co-founder, Dr. Bob Meneilly.
The GOTV Gala is the primary fundraising event for The Voter Network. All funds raised help keep our lights on so we can continue expanding voting access – especially within communities that have been routinely undermined in the political process. The Voter Network is the 501(c)(3) affiliate of Mainstream Coalition, dedicated to creating a culture of informed and enthusiastic Kansas voters, particularly within communities that have been routinely undermined by the political process.
For Your Health & Safety
We are limiting in person attendance at the GOTV Gala. Individuals attending in person will be required to wear masks and be fully vaccinated. Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination for entry into the event.
If you are not fully vaccinated or prefer not to share your vaccination status, you are invited to join us for a livestream of the program (more information coming soon). Additionally, anyone who is exhibiting any symptoms of illness or believes they may have been exposed to COVID-19 is also asked to participate in the event virtually.
*Please stay tuned for updates as we make adjustments based on guidance from the CDC and local health departments.
