TOP 100 PARTY, AUGUST 29, 2017

Each year, Capitol Weekly’s Top 100 names the most powerful movers and shakers in California politics. We don’t include elected officials. Instead, we look at those who devote their professional lives to fighting for – or against – issues of state politics and policy, including lobbyists, bureaucrats, activists, trade group leaders, Capitol staffers and even journalists.

This year, Capitol Weekly will unveil the Top 100 List at a lively end-of-session reception on Tuesday, August 29. You’re invited to celebrate with us at this very special mixer.  Enjoy a hosted bar, delicious snacks and live entertainment from the Little Charlie Caravan in one of the most beautiful historic settings in the city. You’ll have fun! You’ll be the first to receive a copy of Capitol Weekly’s 2017 Top 100 Book!  


And you’ll be supporting a good cause: All proceeds from The Top 100 Party benefit Open California, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit publisher of Capitol Weekly.

Open California was founded in 2012 to continue – and expand on – the important public policy work done by Capitol Weekly.

Five years later, Open California is growing.  We’ve maintained a grueling schedule: regular updates to, the Roundup, The Capitol Weekly Podcast and Political Pulse, produced our quarterly Public Policy Conference series and our Politics on Tap TV show, and our Public Policy Journalism internship program.  

Come help us celebrate our fifth anniversary at the annual Top 100 Party! Tickets to the Top 100 Party are $100 each, and the ticket price is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.* 

Or, become a Host Sponsor for $500 and receive five tickets and our undying gratitude. (Call Capitol Weekly’s Kathy Brown at 916 444 7665 for details.)

Don’t miss this very special night – see you on August 29!
