Join our 2019 Good Government Award honoring Dennis Forney & Trish Vernon!

Please join us this fall as we honor two incredible changemakers from the Cape Gazette — a local publication that has held our public officials accountable and strived for truth and accuracy for over 25 years.

The Cape Gazette’s slogan is “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” Dennis, Trish, and the rest of the newspaper’s staff have been an essential pillar of our democracy — keeping us connected, informed, and aware.

We’re looking forward to celebrating with you — as well as raising the resources we need to keep fighting for key democracy reforms here in Delaware. So join us for hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and a silent auction.

WHAT: 2019 Good Government Awards honoring Dennis Forney (publisher) and Trish Vernon (editor) of the Cape Gazette
WHEN: Thursday, October 17th, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
WHERE: The Clubhouse at Baywood (32267 Clubhouse Way, Millsboro, DE 19966)
