Meet Vice President Biden

Just got this e-mail and wanted to make sure everyone had the opportunity...

Dear Friends,
I have attached an invitation to a special event in Boston on June 23 with Vice President Joe Biden. The DNC/OFA New England Steering Committee is hosting a fundraising reception and dinner at Fenway Park.

While ticket prices for the reception and dinner range from $500-$5,000, a limited number of reception tickets are available at $250. You can purchase tickets through the following link:

This event is a wonderful opportunity to support Organizing for America. Here in Massachusetts, we are already seeing how powerful this new organizing arm of the DNC will be in supporting President Obama's agenda. Nearly 500 people attended the Organizing for America - Massachusetts ("OFA-MA") Grassroots Organizing Forum on May 16; and, this past weekend, hundreds of volunteers hosted or attended healthcare reform kick-off events throughout Massachusetts (which received media coverage on ABC News and in The Boston Globe). So many of you continue to work with the local Obama groups you formed during the campaign, and because of your work, our OFA-MA organization here is strong and active. OFA is an unprecendented effort, and I hope you will all continue the work we began during the campaign by working with OFA-MA to support President Obama. Our work will be especially important as the fight for healthcare reform begins. Sustaining this incredible grassroots movement is costly--it will take nearly $30 million a year to launch and maintain OFA staff and initiatives in all 50 states, including here in Mass. I hope you can come to the event on June 23. If you cannot attend, please consider making a contribution to the DNC/OFA.

Many thanks,
Sarah Compton
