‘Parks and Rec’ cast members hosting special reunion to raise money for Wisconsin Democrats


Several cast members from NBC’s hit comedy “Parks and Recreation” and a co-creator of the show are reuniting this week to help raise money for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

According to an advertisement for the event shared by Aubrey Plaza, who played April Ludgate on the show, the reunion will include her, fellow cast members Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Retta, Adam Scott and Jim O’Heir, and Michael Schur, who co-created the show.

Other “special guests” are expected to attend the event, which is slated for Thursday evening and will include a “town hall” as well as a Q&A. 

“Chip in ANY amount at the link in bio to get access to the full event.” Plaza wrote on her Instagram post detailing the event to her 2.6 million followers over the weekend.

A page asking for donations that Plaza’s post refers to says the event will only be “live-streamed once” at 8 p.m. CT on Thursday.

“Anything you donate will be used to ensure that Trump loses Wisconsin, and thereby the White House,” the page states.

Stars from “The Princess Bride” also reunited for another fundraiser supporting Wisconsin Democrats over the weekend.

Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Billy Crystal came together to host a virtual table read to raise money for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

The event drew heat from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a longtime fan of the cult classic, shortly after reports emerged of the cast members’ plans.

Wisconsin is one of a number of battleground states to watch in the coming election. President Trump won Wisconsin by a close margin in 2016 and a recent poll shows him trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by several points in the state.
