This tradition sitting down with a handful of supporters like you for dinner started five years ago.

I have great memories from each one.

It's bittersweet, but this will be the last of these dinners on my last campaign. I'd love for you and your guest to be there. As always, your flight and hotel are on us.

Give $X or whatever you can before midnight tomorrow to automatically put your name in.
