Buerkle Pairs Fundraiser With Basketball Game

Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle (R-N.Y.) hasn’t been in Congress long, but she has already caught on with the successful pairing of sports and fundraising.

The 25th district Representative, who narrowly knocked off Democratic Rep. Dan Maffei last fall, will host a Feb. 9 reception at Bullfeathers. While donations are encouraged in the invitation ($250 for guests, $1,000 for political action committees and $2,000 for hosts), an equally important draw is the game.

The invitation notes that Bullfeathers will be airing the NCAA men’s matchup that pits the hometown Georgetown University Hoyas against Buerkle’s district’s favorite, the Syracuse University Orange.
Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
