Open your checkbook, Toni Preckwinkle is planning a fundraiser. 0

Will Toni Preckwinkle serve pop at her party?

September 27th, 2016

Supporters of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle will gather Sept. 29 for the “Women for Toni” political fundraiser.

Tickets range from $100 to $5,000 and can be made out to “Preckwinkle for President.”

I wonder if soft drinks will be on the menu, given Preckwinkle’s mulling a tax on the sugary drinks. This old-school Democratic crowd may prefer something more old-school, anyway. How about an Old Fashioned?

Among the organizers are Roula Alakiotou, Family Focus founder Bernice Weissbourd and Landscapes owner Christy Webber.

In her invitation, Preckwinkle writes, “With the country on the verge of electing the first woman to the office of president, we have the opportunity to foster a new generation of voices to continue our fight. We made great strides in recent years but our rights are being challenged or restricted everyday, and we can not allow this to happen.”
