We are thrilled to announce that the 3rd Annual Grand Old Picnic surpassed our fundraising goals with ease. In fact, we even managed to slightly exceed our target! Now, the challenge before us is to raise the bar even higher for next year’s event.
Following the conventions in May, we wasted no time in launching the planning and arrangements for this year’s picnic. One aspect that contributed to our success was securing the services of the incredible catering team at Smok-N-Pigz. Despite the short timeframe, they stepped up and ensured that our volunteers could truly enjoy the event instead of toiling away throughout. A satisfied and well-fed team of volunteers makes all the difference!
Of course, what’s a picnic without fantastic live music? Thanks to the incredible talent of Whiskey Bizness, our attendees were treated to an unforgettable musical experience. And let’s not forget the venue itself—Rassawek Vineyard provided us with unparalleled beauty and perfect weather, creating an idyllic setting for our gathering.
To all our guests, volunteers, and speakers—especially Angela Allen, whose motivational speech left a lasting impact—we extend our heartfelt thanks. Your presence and support made this event truly memorable.
With a full slate of local Republican candidates and a successful fundraiser under our belt, the Grand Old Picnic proved to be a resounding triumph! We look forward to the future as we continue to strengthen local conservative in Goochland our community and advance our shared and imperative conservative values.
