Send Shay to DNC 2016!

I was elected to attend the Democratic National Convention and it would be an honor if you supported my efforts to attend the convention by making a contribution.  This year's convention will be held in Philadelphia from July 24 to July 29th.  However, the convention costs are preset by the National Committee and this year's are the most expensive in convention history. Contributions go towards hotel and transportation expenses. Here's some info for you... 

About Me

I am Shay Wyrick Cathey, a lifelong democrat, who began working on Democratic campaigns as young girl learning at the feet of my mother, a decades long Democratic precinct chair. I have pushed cards, block walked and phone banked for many Democratic candidates as child, teenager and now as an adult.

I never missed voting in a Democratic Primary or Runoff or ANY election since I became eligible to vote in 1990. That’s 26 years of supporting Democrats for office!

I  have served on the Texas State Democratic Executive Committee as the Democratic Committeeman for the Texas 23rd Senate District since 2006, which is a volunteer position.

I am full-time wife and mom who also works outside the home. My participation in Democratic politics and organizations is voluntary.

Election to the Democratic National Convention
I was recently elected at the Texas Democratic Convention as a pledged national alternate for Hillary Clinton. However, I have recently been elevated and will now be a Delegate I am so honored that I will be casting a vote for Secretary Hillary Clinton to the Democratic nominee for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

How will your contribution will be used? And why is Shay asking for help?
DNC 2016 is the most expensive convention in history. Being elected to attend is an honor yet it is also a huge financial commitment. The DNC hotel group rate for the assigned Texas delegation hotel is $565 a night with a minimum of five nights. I am committed to attending, however, any assistance would be appreciated.  Funds raised through this GoFundMe campaign will be used for hotel and transportation costs. 

How soon are funds needed?
A deposit will be charged by the hotel on Sunday, July 17 and I hope to raise as much as possible by that date. 

Your Support is Appreciated
Thank you for checking out my page and I thank you for even considering supporting my efforts to attend the Democratic National Convention. Your support means so much to me and your help is needed so that I can attend the convention.  ANY contribution amount is welcome. 

Thank you!
