The Catalina Democrats Club is a group of Democrats committed to giving $1000 per year to the Pima County Democratic Party. These contributions make it possible for the Pima County Party to have an outstanding get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort. The Catalina Democrats meet at least quarterly with prominent Democrats in members’ homes and other fine settings.
Members of the Catalina Democrats automatically become members of the Nucleus Club, another giving organization which meets the second Thursday of every month from 5:30-7:00pm at the Viscount Suite Hotel with guest speakers, free food for members, and networking opportunities.
