A few days ago we wrote about Club 44. There is additional news about this great new Hillary fundraiser which only costs $20.00.
The big new news is the addition of performers at the event and a Master of Ceremony (make that Mistress of Ceremony because the role belongs to actress and comedian, Caroline Rhea). Caroline Rhea will not only play host, she will also entertain with her comedy. Rhea will join other notable women such as Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones and Madeleine Albright in support of Hillary. Rhea said “This country is ready for change and Hillary is ready to lead as the next president.”
Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds (won the Grammy Award 10 times) and Katharine McPhee (American Idol finalist) will perform at Club 44. “Young women can play a major role in deciding who our next president is,” said McPhee. “It’s important for all of us to get involved in the political process, and I’m happy to do my part by being part of this great event and performing for our next president, Hillary Clinton.” [We hereby nominate and elect Hillary as our American Idol (we grant a huge exemption on the singing)].
“The event is expected to take on a carnival theme with a moon bounce, food vendors, and other fun activities for the whole family. Local choirs and marching bands will also perform at the event and the campaign is expected to raffle off several prizes including a dinner with Hillary Clinton.” Some real lucky person is going to win that prize.
Club 44 is the beginning of a major outreach effort to young women, 12.5 million of which were eligible to vote in 2004. All are welcome at the event.
You can get tickets at the Club 44 link or by calling 703-875-1275.
The Club 44 event is on June 6, 2007, from 5:00 to 7:00 (EDT) in Washington, D.C. The cost is $20. Under 18 years old and admission is FREE. Address is 11th and H Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
BTW, in another bit of news, according to the New York Daily News
“Hillary Clinton’s lighthearted quest for a new campaign song is No.1 with a bullet, at least on YouTube. Clinton has passed her 2008 rivals on the hot video site since launching a self-mocking push to pick a new soundtrack to her White House run. “She is engaging voters with this YouTube campaign,” said Andrew Rasiej, of Techpresident.com, which tracks candidates’ online efforts. According to his site, Clinton has logged more than 1.3 million video views, the majority since she posted a pair of spots on YouTube’s ’08 Spotlight – one making fun of her own singing and another of goofy responses.”
