Obama Inauguration Gala for Latinos
Are you heading to DC for the inauguration and want to do something more than just stand around listening to Obama speak?
Well you can join the Democratic National Committee Hispanic Caucus, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO),the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Voto Latino, Latino elected officials and community leaders from across the country, as well as Latino celebrities at the LATINO INAUGURAL GALA to celebrate a night of history-in-the-making. The gala will take place on Sunday, January 18th, to once again celebrate this historic election.
How much you ask? I hope you saved up from your last pay check because this will run you $200 per ticket! Too much? All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino. However if you are part of a corporation, there are sponsorship opportunities, just visit the gala web-site for more details.
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it *sigh*. However, Obama will be in Philly before his inaugration :).
