It's my honor to invite you to take part in an event I'm hosting at my home

with the President and First Lady on June 14th.

If you can make a donation of any amount today, you'll be automatically

entered to win two tickets to New York to join

us.



Just before Election Day in 2008, I went to an Obama campaign office in New

York and called some undecided voters.

I believed then, as I do now, that if we all chipped in and did our part,

we would not only make history, but create meaningful change that so many

Americans needed.

For me, this election is even more important than 2008.

As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country

can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success.

This November's election will determine whether we get to keep moving

forward, or if we're forced to go back to policies that ask people like my

middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden while people like me,

who don't need tax breaks, get extra help.

I'm hosting this event on June 14th because there is so much at stake this

year, and I want to keep doing what I can.

I hope you'll help me welcome President Obama and the First Lady to New

York.

It should be fabulous.

Donate $3 or whatever you can to be automatically entered to win:

Hope to see you there,

Sarah Jessica

I'm honored to be hosting the President and the First Lady at my home for an evening next month.

I feel like it's the least I can do for someone who has inspired me -- and so many other Americans -- since he announced his candidacy. I'm proud to say I'm a supporter.

I have a feeling you know what I mean -- and that's why you're invited, too, along with a guest of your choice.

By pitching in $10 or whatever you're able to help re-elect President Obama, you'll be automatically entered for the chance to join us airfare covered :

We've got a lot of work to do -- and we'll have a lot to talk about.

Why not give it a try?

Thanks,

Sarah Jessica

I'm thrilled about this: Pretty soon, I'll be hosting the President and

First Lady of the United States at my home in New York.

It'll be a rather small gathering of supporters -- and I'd like to extend

an invitation to you, too.

Just donate to President Obama's campaign today, and you'll entered to join us -- with a guest of your

choice.



Grassroots supporters like you are going to make or break this election,

and that's why I'm really excited to meet you.

We'll get to spend some time with the president we're committed to fighting

for.

What do you think?
