A few days ago, President Barack Obama announced his re-election campaign raised $70.1 Million.
Now we’re hearing that First Lady Michelle Obama is coming to Houston to add to the campaign coffers.
Local democratic party fundraisers are sending out notices urging people to start writing checks for a chance to meet FLOTUS and contribute to the re-election effort.
Here’s a copy of one I received from LaRence Snowden, a personal friend of Barack and Michelle Obama:
Yes, it’s that time again…
I am extremely honored to be a part of the committee bringing my friend, First Lady Michelle Obama to Houston on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 for two events! (it brings back memories of the campaign travel for 2008)
First, please consider joining us for a Reception at the Westin Oaks Galleria, at 3:30 pm. You can attend this event for $250 with the opportunity to hear Mrs. Obama speak about the important issues we are facing today (she is the ultimate surrogate for our President). Also, there will be a VIP reception with local dignitaries and a photo opportunity with the First Lady, at higher contribution levels.

The second event is a Private Dinner at a home in Houston. Each dinner guest will have the opportunity for a photo with the First Lady.

Two great events, one exciting evening…I hope you are able to attend one of them. Join me in making this a great evening as we welcome OUR First Lady to Texas. You will be inspired! Please make your contribution today so that we can show Texas size support for OUR President for the upcoming campaign…we must keep moving forward.
If you are able to attend, please let me know. In addition, I would be grateful if you would enter my name, LaRence Snowden in the box asking “who encouraged you to make this contribution.”
If you have any questions, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or give me a call at 713-302-1463. If you know of others who might be interested in either event please forward their names to me, and I will contact them as well (letting them know that you provided the connection). It will be a day to remember in Houston!!!
I am counting on you – join me on November 1st.
