Supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton can attend a first fundraiser 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Madame’s Main Attraction in downtown Van Buren.
Sheila Bell and Cathy Gifford organized the Hillary Happy Hour as a low-dollar fundraiser for "good ol’ common folks" who support Clinton, Bell said.
A $25 donation is suggested to attend the event, Gifford said.
More than 40 similar grassroots events for Clinton will be held in Arkansas on Tuesday, Gifford said.
"The goal is that each of the 40 events raise $2,500," Gifford said.
Refreshments will be served and a representative from Clinton’s national campaign is expected to call in with an update, Bell said.
"We will discuss how we can help get the message of the campaign out in Crawford County," Bell said.
This is the first Clinton supported campaign event in Crawford County for the 2016 election season, Bell said.
Organizers are hoping Clinton campaign paraphernalia such as bumper stickers and informational brochures also will be available for the event, according to Bell.
