Progress Iowa Virtual Holiday Party will take place Thursday, December 17th
Des Moines, Iowa – Holiday cheer, terrific musical performances, and appearances by Representatives Cindy Axne and Dave Loebsack and State Auditor Rob Sand will highlight the eighth annual Progress Iowa Holiday Party, to be held virtually on Thursday, December 17th.
This year’s Progress Iowa Holiday Party will be accessible to more Iowans than ever before, as the event transitions to streaming through various online platforms. The event will feature a musical performance by Madison Ray and The Finesse, and the presentation of two awards. The Harkin Hero award to an Iowa elected official (or officials) who have promoted progressive policies, and the Marcia Nichols Progressive Advocate of the Year award to someone who is not an elected official that has promoted progressive values. The winners will be announced early this week, along with additional speakers.
“We’re thrilled to end this year with our supporters, partner organizations, and amazing leaders including Cindy Axne, Dave Loebsack, and Rob Sand,” said Matt Sinovic, executive director of Progress Iowa.
“Iowa progressives are more motivated than ever to spread holiday cheer and positive change here in Iowa. And we can’t wait to discuss how we move forward, but also all of the great work our community has accomplished. We want to inspire everyone attending to continue the progressive fight and mission in our community.”
The Progress Iowa Holiday Party will be live-streamed on Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter at 7:00 p.m. CT on Thursday, December 17th, and will focus on bringing together Iowa’s progressive community to celebrate the work accomplished this year, and the work to be done in 2021.
