I'm co-hosting an Obama fundraiser in just over one week. I've never hosted a political fundraiser before. Here's a link to my fundraising page.
While I'm bracing for the backlash of anti-Obama sentiment, I will make a conscious effort to keep my mind on the positive, forward-thinking attitude he's demonstrated since declaring his intent to run for president.
Today, I wrote about my efforts in my weekly opinion column on AOL Huffpost's Patch.com. I'm certain the comments section will fill up with emotionally charged statements.
I'm out of my comfort zone pulling a fundraiser like this together. It's hard to predict how this effort will go, but I'm willing to ride the waves.
