Over 120 Delawareans attended the event honoring a free and independent media represented by the Cape Gazette! For a quarter of a century they have brought the community together and demanded accountability from our public officials. In good times and bad the Cape Gazette has been a voice of the people strongly supporting the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
We congratulate them for the inspiring words and look forward to their voice in the media for many years to come.
Thank you for your attendance and support – We appreciate you
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.
