2017 Donkey Show

Home / 2017 Donkey Show

It was time again for the Far North Dallas Richardson Democrats 6th Annual Donkey Show, the event that put FUN back into Fundraiser! The Donkey Show has sold out each time to an audience of avid and influential Democrats and 2017 was no exception.  We had a new larger venue and new entertainment.

The Donkey Show was held on Sunday, November 5 from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Mockingbird Station, at Hyena’s Comedy Club [ map ] immediately adjacent to Angelika Theatre.
