In 2008, a group of Democratic activists organized a low-cost Inauguration celebration for 500 of the volunteers who worked hard on the campaign but weren’t interested in the formal big-ticket Balls. So that the event would represent Democratic values in action, all profits went to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). We raised over $7,000 and 3,000 lbs of food that night – and everyone had a GREAT time.

So we decided to do it again this year, to celebrate another great effort and to provide a fitting finale for the National Day of Service on January 19th. We’d love for you to join us for this very special event.

Order your tickets online from the State Theatre or buy them in person at the State Theatre box office.
All proceeds above our costs will benefit the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC).  We also will accept food donations. Please bring a bag or two of groceries!  AFAC needs non-perishable foods, such as pasta, spaghetti sauce, tuna fish, peanut butter, cereal, soups, etc.

*A portion of each ticket is tax deductible. Receipts will be available at check in.  Food donations are also deductible.

An event organized in coordination with the Presidential Inaugural Committee and the January 19th Day of Service.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
