Bay Ridge Democrats Hold Inaugural Spring Gala

On May 30, 2019 the Bay Ridge Dems welcomed nearly 200 guests to our first spring dinner in celebration of the work being done in our community and to build upon the momentum of the Democratic Party in Southern Brooklyn. Our slate of honorees represented our neighborhood’s history and its vanguard of political activism. Our club was grateful to recognize their substantial contributions to building a stronger, more inclusive Bay Ridge and beyond.
