> Dear NFB of California:
> I am writing to you in my personal capacity to invite your 
> attendance and support at a civil rights and disability 
> community event in San Francisco to help re-elect President Obama.
> My journey thus far as a blind individual has convinced me 
> that equal opportunity and full integration for all Americans 
> is of paramount importance.  The progress that the Obama 
> administration has made towards obtaining equal opportunities 
> for people with disabilities is astounding:
> thousands of jobs created, legislation passed or underway, 
> and protection for supports and services that are critical to 
> our community.
> I am helping to organize an official campaign event that aims 
> to raise funds to support the President's election, and to 
> raise the profile of the bay area community.  The San 
> Francisco event will be one of many disability fund raisers 
> across the country from Washington DC, to Los Angeles and 
> elsewhere in an effort to show our solidarity, power and 
> strength as we work towards a bright inclusive future.
> The San Francisco Obama Victory Fund event will take place on 
> September 12, with surrogate Valerie Jarrett, and hopefully, 
> a special guest or two as well.  Ms. Jarrett is senior 
> advisor to President Obama, and has much to share with us 
> about the accomplishments of the administration to date, and 
> our hopes and plans for the future.  The event will take 
> place from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at Local Union 261:
> 3271 18th Street, between Shotwell and Van Ness.
> For now, I need your commitment to stand with the Bay area 
> disability community in support of this event.  You may 
> participate as a participating chair (by raising $2,500), a 
> host (by raising $1,000), both of which will place your name 
> on the official invitation. or you can purchase individual 
> tickets to attend the event at $100 each.  Even if you cannot 
> attend, you can still donate any amount.  You can register 
> and donate online at 
> https://donate.barackobama.com/page/contribute/o2012-September
> 12SanFrancisco
> Reception. Important: before you hit the "donate now" button, 
> please write my name (Deepa Goraya) in the box when you see 
> the question, "Who encouraged you to make this contribution." 
> That way I can keep a tally of how much I have raised.
> Please respond to this e-mail with your desired level of 
> participation, address, occupation and employer (for vetting 
> by the DNC).  We hope to include your name on our invitation, 
> to inspire our friends in the Bay area to join us.  Your 
> support is critically important, and deeply meaningful.
> Also, please pass this on to your friends and family and 
> encourage them to attend and contribute!
> Thank you for your support.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.
> With gratitude,
