Republicans and Democrats, business lobbyists and union leaders, environmentalists and oil company representatives, were among the 80 people from right, left and center, who attended the second annual happy hour for MarylandReporter.com on Thursday night at Harry Browne’s across from the State House in Annapolis. The event raised about $20,000 for the nonprofit news website, which is dedicated to providing comprehensive news about state government and politics. Sponsors are listed at the bottom of this page. Many who donated were unable to attend the event. Here’s a photo gallery of some of the folks who did. The photos were taken by reporter Jeremy Bauer-Wolf. Couldn’t make it? Donations to MarylandReporter.com are tax deductible since it is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation recognized by the IRS. Make a donation, and we’ll be happy to buy you a drink at Harry Browne’s.
