DRIVE FOR CHANGE AND BARACK OBAMA COMING TO VEGAS
Drive for Change is coming to Vegas this weekend!
Come say hi!
***DO NOT FORGET to register at http://ca.barackobama.com/drivetonevadagroups if you haven't done so already. Insert your info, then select COME OUT FOR OBAMA from the drop-down menu. This is imperative for the campaign's ability to keep track of us!
***If you need a hotel room, DON'T FORGET to call the Tropicana Hotel, where we have a rate of $109.00 a night established. Call 1-800-634-4000 and tell them you're with the COME OUT FOR OBAMA group to get the rate!
***Saturday, October 25th:
9am: CHECK IN. Meet up for training from the Obama Campaign, followed by canvassing!
Here's where our group is meeting up to get trained:
Spring Valley Community Park, NE corner of S Buffalo and W Flamingo.
Parking: School lot off of S. Buffalo
It's a few miles from the Tropicana, and easily Google Mapped. Once you're there, look for signs designating where our group congregates. We'll get our marching orders from there. Abdi Nazemian will have maps at the Tropicana-- but look it up online if you like.
9:30pm: Cocktail party honoring activists Cleve Jones and Harvey Milk at Caramel (at the Hotel Bellagio, 3600 S. Las Vegas Blvd, (702) 693-8300), co-hosted by Rose McGowan
11pm: COME OUT AND VOTE party at Bank Nightclub (also at the Bellagio Hotel), hosted by Rose McGowan
After the event at Bank, we're going to be going to several clubs (Krave and Piranha/Gypsy) to stump for Obama-- and several of our hosts have been invited to speak.
KRAVE Club. The club is co-hosting us and Elton John's husband's birthday party, so it's going to be QUITE the scene, with lots of people in attendance to rally! The address for KRAVE is: 3663 Las Vegas Blvd South
SUPER IMPORTANT UPDATE
11pm - Krave - Never mind the password-- we'll just have your name at the door-- if you haven't registered yet, DO SO now at ca.barackobama.com/drivetonevadagroups as soon as possible-- that's how we're going to create the RSVP list.
PIRANHA/GYPSY Clubs. We're going to be speaking to the crowd here as well! The address for PIRANHA and GYPSY is: 4633 Paradise Rd. Say you're a guest of Joshua Miller to get in.
...AND NOW, FOR THE SURPRISE:
***Barack Obama will be in Las Vegas this weekend-- and all of us who've decided to donate our time and energy are going to get to see him speak. Since the time of his speech is TBD, some event times are subject to change.***
