I had a really nice time. I thought the event was put together really well from the birthday cake to the full size cut out of our president. The vibe was positive and engaging. It was one of two events I've attended this year with this meetup but I will be back to attend many more :) 4 more years! 4 more years!

What a great event! Despite rain and parking challenges, most people came and many who didn't let me know they had made online donations. CBPSN was still able to achieve our goal of raising over $1,000 for the Obama reelection campaign! Lite bites, a raffle, fun photos with "Obama" and a very cool birthday cake added to the good time. Huge thanks to cohosts Chrystal, Suzette, Jason, Pam, and Yvonne who kept everything running smoothly, and M Lounge owner Reggie for letting us have the space(and a $50 donation!). Even if you missed the fundraiser, you can still help by donating online at www.barackobama.com. Cheers to another 4 years!

The first 25 people to make their $20 donation will receive an "Obama 2012" button. If you donate more than $20, you will be entered in the drawing to win 6 special Obama limited edition Mardi Gras beads and 5 "Barack in the Day" vintage high school photo buttons! Or buy a raffle ticket for $1 extra. We collected $1,155 at our birthday fundraiser last year, let's see if we can top that this time!

Obama is heading toward being the first incumbent President to be outspent in a re-election campaign. It is no secret that his opponent has extremely wealthy supporters who hate our current president and want to help Romney buy the next election. We can't compete dollar-for-dollar, there is too much money on the other side. But what we can & must do is ensure Barack has the resources to get his accomplishments publicized and respond to the Republican attack ads. Your financial support is needed now more than ever. Here is your chance to help!

Hi Cindy! You and Suzette, Chrystal, Trice, Yvonne, thank you all so much for your offers to help! I know that night will be a huge success because of the great team work. Please arrive 5:45p-6p to help set up food, decorate, sign folks in, hand out donation forms and beads, watch the money box, and meet & greet. It's going to be an awesome night!

FRIENDS: As stated before- if for personal reasons you are not an Obama supporter and do not plan to attend, we respect that as your right. However it is not necessary to RSVP "NO" or make disparaging comments. If you have different views, please use the discussion board for comments instead. If you do not respond we will assume you are not coming, while avoiding negativity and inbox clutter to those attending. I have deleted some comments for this reason. Thanks for your understanding!

Scary news! Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised over 100 MILLION DOLLARS in campaign donations in the month of June alone. It is no secret that he has extremely wealthy supporters who hate our current president and want to help Romney buy the next election. Most of this will be spent on negative ads to demean and belittle everything Obama has accomplished so far, and sway voters who are unsure. Your financial support is needed now more than ever. Here is your chance to help!
