We are late to this, but wanted to post a missive from the Democratic National Committee about a fundraiser on the west side hosted by Michelle Obama and Sarah Jessica Parker and featuring Patti LaBelle later this month. The cost of entry is $250 a head, but putting down a cool $2,500 gets you a pre-event meet-and-greet with SJP and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
Parker has been something of ringer for Democrats in recent years, headlining fundraisers for Harold Ford, John Hall and Claire McCaskill, and for a young senator named Barack Obama. Full invite below:
