Upper Eastside Love for Pilgrim-Hunter

[Updated, April 29, 1:10 p.m.]
Desiree Pilgrim-Hunter, the Fordham Hill activist taking on Pedro Espada for the 33rd Senate District seat, is hoping to raise $100,000 at fundraiser hosted by Cathy and Marc Lasyr, two big-time Democratic donors, at their Upper Eastside home, according to a report by the Daily News' Celeste Katz.

The event is scheduled for May 26.

Pilgrim-Hunter is looking to make up a mountainous fund raising deficit. According to her actblue.com web page, she's raised $6,183 so far. (That's only online contributions, according to Yorman Nunez, a campaign adviser. That doesn't include how much Pilgrim-Hunter has raised through other events like house parties, but Nunez wouldn't disclose that amount.)

Espada, on the other hand, has raised $304,450, according to his latest state campaign finance filings.
