The chief executive of public relations and consulting firm Capstrat is throwing a fundraiser for Democratic senators.
Ken Eudy, CEO of the Raleigh-based firm, will host the fundraiser at his home in Raleigh, Ben Niolet reports.
The headline guests for the Aug. 24 event are Senate Leader Marc Basnight, Majority Leader Sen. Martin Nesbitt and former Gov. Jim Hunt. Wake County Sens. Dan Blue and Josh Stein are also mentioned on the invitation.
Platinum level sponsors are asked for a $4,000 contribution. Sponsors, including $500 "bronze" givers will be recognized at the event. Tickets are $125.
A copy of the invitation has been making the rounds, especially in light of the fact that Capstrat just got a $375,000 per year contract to handle PR and business development for the N.C. Ports Authority.
The authority is still reeling from a dead-in-the-water proposal to build a $3 billion deep water port.
