On Friday October 17th, the Barack On! Obamathon fundraiser was held at the Los Angeles D.I.Y. screenprinting shop Fresh Pressed. With pro-Obama designs contributed by local arists and designers for silk-screening of shirts and posters, bakers feeding those hungry for change with a sidewalk bake sale, and people of all ages coming out to support our effort with positivity and enthusiasm, what started out as a modest fundraiser quickly turned into a mini block party. The “fun” in fundraiser was definitely on display as both kids and adults Baracked the night away! (check photos of the event here: http://flickr.com/photos/sleazycompany/sets/72157608164286789/)
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make a difference! Special thanks to all our friends who contributed their time to dj, take photos, participate in the bake sale, tend the bar, help usher in the long lines, and work behind the counter! Extra special thanks to Max Erdenberger, Jimm Lasser, Jessica Louise, Amy Martin, Megan McGinley, Lenny Mesina, Jonathan Sample, and Nick Toga, for their artistic contributions and getting their design on in such a hurry!
Designs created for the fundraiser are still available at Fresh Pressed. Proceeds go to the Obama campaign.
