Clay Aiken – North Carolina BBQ

 

On Sunday afternoon, Steven Norris and Dale Hemrick hosted a North Carolina BBQ at their home in Cary in support of Clay Aiken, the Candidate for United States Congress – North Carolina’s 2nd District.  According to those in attendance, it was a great time for all and was a successful fundraising event.

The following is just a short report about the event.  There were at least four reports about the exciting afternoon and so there is lots of information.

1.   Reports said that there were between 50 to 100 people in attendance.

2.  Clay posed for lots of selfies.

3.  Clay’s good friend, Nick Leisey, moved back to North Carolina to help with Clay’s campaign.  He will be handling fundraising!  Another new member of the team was there too.  Ebony is working on scheduling.

4.  There was lots of delicious food and drink, including BBQ – Pulled Pork and BBQ Chicken.  They even had Strawberry Shortcake.

5.  There was a live band on the poll deck who added some fun to the party.

6.  Clay walked around and talked to each guest.  He remembered some of the people that he had met before.

7.  Clay took a few minutes to talk to the entire group.  He reminded them why he was running and why he feels he is qualified for the job.

According to Yeahyourgifted:

Clay talked about education, veterans, campaign funding, how the foundation started and him realizing he had a voice to use for good, and his opponent and how she doesn’t listen to her people…

8.  Clay left quickly at the end.  He said that he had a meeting before the BBQ and had another that he was heading to after the BBQ.

I wish that I lived close enough to attend this fun party.  Do you think we could have North Carolina BBQ in San Francisco??(With Clay, of course).

Hopefully, we will get more information and pictures tomorrow.

 If so, I will post the info and pictures as soon as I can.  

A big thank you to all who share their reviews and pictures.  It makes it so much fun for all of us!!

  1. Oh how I wished I lived closer! Think we could have a crawfish boil in my backyard with Clay in attendance???

  2. It's so good to see pictures Clay back on the campaign trail again. I would love to attend any kid of event in support of Clay. Hope we start seeing lots of "selfies" and events.

  3. Love that Clay is back on the campaign trail. Great news that Nick Leisey will be helping him in his campaign. Thanks for the recap and pics.

  4. What a beautiful setting for a BBQ/Fundraiser. It looks like the weather was good too. I hope I have the opportunity to go to one of Clay's fundraiser parties. I would love to attend.

    Thank you for all the info!

  5. Thanks for bringing over the pics and reports from yesterday's BBQ. What fun. I wish I lived closer as well. I'm hoping for something of a fundraiser maybe on the Sunday after the Gala in September. We are staying over until Monday, so if that was a go, we would try to go to that…Keeping fingers crossed there is something.
