First lady Michelle Obama will meet supporters who donate at least $250 at an upcoming Washington, D.C., fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
DC for Obama sent an email Sept. 30 asking for last-minute donations before the third-quarter fundraising deadline. Those who gave $250 were invited to an Oct. 11 reception at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in D.C. Donations of $1,000 allowed donors access to the “VIP Section” of the reception.
“Make a contribution of any amount today so your commitment can be represented in the financials that pundits will be dissecting in the weeks ahead,” the email stated.
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
