The event will be held at the Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln St.
Local dignitaries and elected officials will greet attendees from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the lower-level lounge, followed by dinner in the upstairs ballroom.
The dinner celebrates Democratic leaders and local citizens who have served the country and the Democratic Party, dinner organizers said.
Former State Rep. Lynn Kessler of Hoquiam will serve as master of ceremonies and introduce Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor.
State Sen. Jim Hargrove of Hoquiam, and Rep. Kevin Van de Wege and Rep. Steve Tharinger, both D-Sequim, will be on hand, dinner organizers said.
Sequim Mayor Ken Hays, Port Angeles Mayor Cherie Kidd and Forks Mayor Bryon Monohon will join the group along with a number of city council members and other locally elected officials, the organizers said.
“The Roosevelt dinner is not only an opportunity to recognize the contributions of our elected officials, veterans and other active Democrats,” county Democratic Committeewoman Julie Johnson, who co-chairs the dinner committee, said. “It is also a time when Democrats come together to have a great time. Our tribal neighbors from across the county will join us as well.”
Co-chair Marcia Farrell, who is organizing the event’s silent auction, said the auction “is our major Democratic fundraiser of the year. We have about 40 intriguing auction items, and I know our funding goals will be achieved.”
Reservations are $60 per person and are available until this Wednesday.
