A reader passed along the following email from Democratic fundraiser Sally Minard inviting supporters to a a “Campaign Inaugural Gala Dinner” for President Barack Obama at the Starlight Roof at the Waldorf-Astoria on April 27.
“The battle lines have been drawn,” writes Minard. “The campaign for the presidency is joined…The revolutionary agenda proposed by the Republicans would drastically transform the relationship between our government and the American people. The budgets and policies offered are truly staggering in the burden they will place on the middle class, actually anyone outside the top 2% of the population. We need to stand with this President so he can continue to implement the progressive policies of our agenda.”
The evening will be topped off by a performance by The Roots at Town Hall Theater. Tickets for that range from $44 (for those in the “Gen 44” category) to $1,000 (which includes a VIP pre-reception with “campaign leaders.”) Tickets for the Waldorf event will set you back a little more, going from $2,500-$25,000

The battle lines have been drawn. The campaign for the presidency is joined.
President Obama will kick off his re-election campaign in New York on Wednesday, April 27.
I invite you to join me at a gala dinner at the Waldorf with the President.
The revolutionary agenda proposed by the Republicans would drastically transform the relationship between our government and the American people. The budgets and policies offered are truly staggering in the burden they will place on the middle class, actually anyone outside the top 2% of the population.
We need to stand with this President so he can continue to implement the progressive policies of our agenda.
I would love to share my table and the evening with you. The event will be relatively small; several hundred of us in attendance with the President. Respond as directed in the invite or call me and we’ll sign you up.
Let me hear from you.
All the best,
President Barack Obama
