"THE FIRST 100 DAYS"
FREE CONCERT OF TOP LOCAL ARTISTS

The end of April will mark the first 100 days of Barack Obama's historic election as President of the United States.  

"The First 100 Days: A Concert for Celebrating and Networking" is an event that brings together energized and action-oriented local Obama campaign volunteers from all over Northeast Ohio.  

It takes place on Sunday, April 19, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd, Cleveland, 216-383-1124).

Top local artists that reflect the diversity of the campaign will perform, including (in alphabetical order): Blue Lunch (big-band-style blues), Horns and Things (original contemporary jazz), Jeff Varga and Kevin Richards (contemporary folk), and The WC Klezmer Orchestra (Eastern European traditional and Yiddish music). 

The concert is free, with an optional suggested $5 donation to help cover costs.  Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share. There will be a cash bar throughout the evening.

The first part of the evening will be discussion, networking and planning for local days of service.  The second part will be the concert and celebration.  Beachland Ballroom calendar http://www.beachlandballroom.com. 

The Northeast Ohio Neighborhood Action Coalition, a group crystallized around county-wide legacy Obama supporters, is organizing and sponsoring this event. The NAACP of Greater Cleveland, the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland, local Democratic Party leadership, representatives from Organizing for America, and other social groups and not-for-profits will be participating.
