SFVYD invites you to attend and sponsor the 10th Annual SFVYD RFK Awards. Our event will take place on Thursday January 31, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Gate Mediterranean Restaurant in Encino.

This year, SFVYD is thrilled to announce that our 4 RFK Awardees are:

• Assemblymember Mike Gatto

• Agi Kessler, Chair of the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley

• Gerry Guzman, Democratic Party activist

• David Phelps, Past President of SFVYD

• Additionally, our Carroll Young Inspiration Award- to recognize an outstanding young Democrat- will be given to immediate past President Mike Young.

We hope that you will join us at the RFK Awards to recognize the tremendous contribution each of our honorees make to the Young Democrats.

The generosity of our donors allows SFVYD to play a prominent role on the campaign trail from local and state races to the historic re-election of President Barack Obama! In partnership with Obama for America, we were able to ensure a “blue” Nevada for the President by delivering 27 volunteer canvassers to Las Vegas, Nevada for “Get Out the 
Vote” weekend. Locally, in a very tight “red-to-blue” race, we were able to deliver a very significant financial contribution to State Senator Fran Pavley to help ensure a Democratic supermajority in the California State Senate. Locally, SFVYD members were actively engaged in campaigns to help fight for candidates and causes we supported.

Among our endorsed candidates, we were particularly proud of Adrin Nazarian’s election to the State Assembly and Tony Cardenas’s election to Congress. Both Assemblymember Nazarian and Congressmember-elect Cardenas were longtime executive board members and leaders within our organization. Without a doubt, SFVYD made its presence felt in the November 2012 elections!

In an important milestone, for the first time in the organizations 18 year history, SFVYD elected its 1st
female President. Our club continues to evolve and inspire the next generation of Democratic leaders. SFVYD deeply appreciates the generous support of our donors. With your assistance, our club will continue to provide Young Democrats with programming, networking opportunities, and election activities in the years to come. Please make your contribution to SFVYD today to honor the past and help build our future.
