The Obama campaign is raffling off to contributors an invitation to President Obama’s 51st birthday party, which will be held at the Obama family home in Chicago.
From and email sent out by the campaign under Michelle Obama’s name:
Barack turns 51 next month, and there will be a little celebration at our house in Chicago.
We’d like to give grassroots supporters an opportunity to join in the fun. You guys deserve it, and I know Barack would personally love to see you there.
Donate $3 or whatever you can today, and you’ll be automatically entered to get your name added to the guest list.
Barack’s birthday is one of the last opportunities he’ll get for a little downtime before the final weeks of the election.
That won’t stop me from teasing him about all those new gray hairs he has — though I think it’s fair to say he’s earned every one.
Obama’s birthday is August 4, thought it’s not clear if the party will be held on the same day. Obama typically stages a few celebrations for his birthday, so the one being raffled off may not be the most intimate.
