Fattman Grammar Conundrum!

OK.  Here’s something for the side column I’ve been dying to put out there, but resisted the urge until after the election.  What is the grammatically correct way to use “Fattman” in this sentence?

“You are cordially invited to the Fattman’s Victory Party”

  • There are clearly two of them.
  • They were both victorious, but that wasn’t known going in.
  • It appears to come from the singular Ryan Fattman for Senate campaign.
  • What is the proper plural of “Fattman” to begin with?
  • Do the Fattmen/Fattmans own the party as an object or are they the subject of the Party itself?

I am befuddled.
