Join the Raging Grannies and satire group "Billionaires for Wealthcare" to protest a Republican fundraiser in Menlo Park this coming Monday October 12 from 11:30am until about 12:30pm or so in front of the Stanford Park Hotel in Menlo Park
(See directions at bottom of this email)

Here's why this event is so important to attend:

The Lincoln Club of Northern California is sponsoring a fundraising luncheon with special guest speaker: House Republican Leader John Boehner for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Boehner recently said, "I don't know anyone outside of Congress and the administration who has mentioned wanting a public option." And this from someone who has only attended tea-party type health care demos! To show you how much we are needed to combat this lunacy, tickets for the lunch are $1000 per person and $10,000 to join the Host Committee.

If you can, Bring placards, if possible on a stick. The Grannies will supply some signs too. There is a wall about 8 ft high in front of the hotel we can hold our signs above them. Demand that Republicans get some morals and support real health care reform! We can also line the entrance to the hotel driveway.

Parking:
There is NO parking at the hotel for non-guests but plenty of parking ACROSS el camino in residential areas. You can then walk across at the traffic light.
