Join me to drink to Obama at the Franklin Square Wine Bar

8 Sep

On Wednesday night, the East Bay Young Democrats are hosting an open bar fundraiser for Barack Obama at the Franklin Square Wine Bar. Sure, there are probably Obama fundraisers happening every night in the Bay Area from now through the election, but this one sounds like it’s worth checking out.

It’s only $25 and will feature San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, Joe Green, the CEO of Facebook Causes, and Abel Guillén, member of the Peralta community college board. It sounds like the actual program will be short though and the fun of the night is to be had in drinking lots of wine and meeting interesting young, politically minded people. And if you haven’t been to the Franklin Square Wine Bar yet, this is a great chance to check it out.

Here are the details, hope to see some of you there.

    Becks,

    Thanks for the info – I’m probably going to go! What constitutes a “young” democrat, anyway? It may be a bit of a stretch at 40, but I’m going for the cause and to see what all the fuss is about at the Franklin Square Wine Bar. 😉 Cheers, Joanna

    Great Joanna – can’t wait to meet you! The event’s hosted by the Young Dems but I’m sure they’ll be people of all ages there. And they surely won’t be turning away anyone for being too old. It should be a lot of fun so I hope you’ll make it over there.
