"Barack For Education" Event Tonight

There's a fancy-schmancy Obama education event being held tonight. Are you going? Were you invited? Me neither.

Xavier Botana

Timothy Daly

Josh Edelman

Paul Goren

Tim Knowles

Mike Lach

John Luczak

Jose Torres

Lisa Vahey

Read below for all the deets. Remember that we're all (except journalists) allowed to be active in politics in our private lives. Big thanks to a friend for passing this along. No thanks to all the rest of you who knew about this but didn't tell me beforehand.

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday night at West Loop

Studio to support Senator Obama's candidacy and learn more about his

vision for education reform. We've got a tremendous evening planned!

Barack for Education – Chicago

Wednesday, October 29th

6:30-8:30 p.m.

West Loop Studio (17 N. Elizabeth Street – valet parking for $5

directly from entrance)

Appetizers, desserts and beverages will be served, including a

specialty cocktail created for our event!

Hear comments from Arne Duncan, the Chicago Public Schools CEO, and

too, and we'll see you Wednesday!
