Gay Democratic activists are planning to hold a fundraiser for President Obama’s re-election campaign in Rehoboth Beach, Del., on Saturday, Aug. 4.
The event will likely be held in a private home but the exact location has yet to be determined. Members of the host committee who have committed to a minimum $2,500 donation so far include: Peter Rosenstein, Jim D’Orta and Jed Ross, Paul Hazen and Michael Ward.
There will be a cocktail party from 5-7 p.m. and a dinner from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Hosts ($2,500 and above) and sponsors ($1,000) receive an invitation to the cocktail party and dinner; supporters ($500 and $250) receive an invitation to the cocktail party. It’s not yet known whether a representative from the Obama campaign will attend.
“This is our time and our president,” Rosenstein said. “Everyone needs to dig deep into their pockets to support the re-election of President Obama. We have never been closer to achieving our goal of full civil and human rights and we can’t take the chance of sliding backwards.”
