This post has been modified from its original version. Just FYI.
As you may have heard, President Obama is coming to Boston this Friday afternoon, Oct. 23 (12:45 p.m.), for an event supporting Governor Patrick’s reelection. And you can be there! We are entitled to one ticket for every $500 we can raise for the Gov’s reelection campaign. We’ll give each ticket we earn to one randomly-selected entrant.
You can enter our little contest in either of two ways:
- You can donate to support Governor Patrick’s reelection, or
- You can leave a comment on this post on either of the following two topics:
(a) “They’re My Guys”: Why you want to support the Governor and meet the President; or
(b) “Who’s Your Nanny?”: The delicious irony of EaBoClipper piously calling our attention to one of the most nanny statish of Massachusetts’ many nanny state regulations, namely, the one that makes it nearly impossible to hold a raffle. ”The law is the law,” says EaBo. Is EaBo your nanny? :D
You do not have to donate money to win — this is a promotion, not a raffle. But obviously, we won’t have anything to award if we don’t hit at least $500. So make your donation here, if you’re inspired to do so. Any amount is welcome — in fact, small donations are especially encouraged, since if we raise $500 from 20 or more donors, the ticket will be in a special front-row section. We’ll announce a winner each time we earn a ticket. Let’s see how many BMGers we can send to this event.
