Enthusiastic Democrats from seven south-central counties will gather for the sixth annual Seven-County Democratic Rally and Fundraiser on Sunday, Aug. 18.

The event will take place between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. It is hosted and planned this year by Marion County Democrats at Cordova Pavilion located at Lake Red Rock, 1378 Highway G28. The seven counties include Appanoose, Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Marion, Monroe and Wayne counties. Democrats in neighboring counties are also encouraged to attend.

All presidential, congressional and state legislative candidates have been invited to speak to the audience of rally attendees. Appetizers, desserts and beverages will be served while guests enjoy the music of Jackson Street Edition, a band from Marion County.

A live auction as well as silent auction will be held to fundraise for the seven counties' Democratic campaign and election needs. For more information, contact the Democratic County Chair in your county, or visit Marion County Iowa Democrats Facebook page.
