The Democratic nominees for governor and U.S. Senate also are slated to speak at the event, which will be on a Saturday.

The party says it will serve as “the marquee fundraising event for the year.” Last month, the state party announced it had raised more than $500,000 between Jan. 11 and May 15 and had more than $1 million cash on hand.
