House Party to Oust Espada

While Pedro Espada Jr. is busy planning an exclusive fundraiser for himself up in Albany next week (entry to the shindig starts at a mere $1,000), we've learned that a group of Bronxites are planning their own little soiree which has been subtly entitled, "House Party to Oust Espada."

Longtime community advocates Miriam Ford, Jack Marth, and Margaret Groarke will be hosting said house party in Van Cortlandt Village next Monday, 3/22, in support of Desiree Pilgrim-Hunter's campaign for NYS Senate. While a major goal of the gathering is to raise funds to boost Ms. Pilgrim-Hunter's campaign to the next level, the event will also offer Bronxites the opportunity to meet the potential Espada opponent and learn more about her vision.

The suggested donation to attend the party is $50, although we hear a contribution of any size will get you in. No $1,000 per ticket Pedro-style snobbery here! Click here to view the full invitation and learn more about the goal of the evening. Those who cannot attend but would still like to support the effort can also do that through the link provided.

You better watch your back, Pedro...
