Barack is so grateful to everyone who's got his back out there -- he'd sit

down with each of you and thank you personally if he could.

So I know he's looking forward to the dinner at Sarah Jessica Parker's

house next week in New York, and meeting a few grassroots supporters like

you.

Any donation you make before midnight to support Barack automatically

enters you to join us -- airfare and hotel included -- along with whoever

you'd like to bring:

Sarah Jessica Parker is a loving mom, an incredibly hard worker, and a great role model. She's one of those people you can't help but admire.

Barack and I are thrilled that we're invited for an evening at her home in New York next week.

And I'm hoping you'll be there, too, along with whoever you'd like to bring. Tonight at midnight is the deadline to enter.

Sarah Jessica Parker is someone who puts 100 percent into everything she does.

Barack and I are honored that, right now, some of that wonderful energy is focused on supporting the campaign.

Next week, on June 14th, she's hosting a dinner for Barack and me with Anna Wintour, and the best seats in the house are reserved for a few supporters who are driving this campaign.

Tonight at midnight is the deadline to enter for a chance to join us, along with whoever you'd like to bring:
