YES it's true, Mr. President himself will be arriving in Miami this week for a fundraiser on October 11th at the JW Marriot Marquis in downtown Miami. I have to admit, I haven't been following the political arena that much, and when President Obama got elected, I was living in Paris, and actually in Hong Kong when he won. I remember watching it on TV in my hotel room and was super excited to see a change in the US.
Over the past 4 years, President Obama has had his ups and downs, but one thing stayed constant, his unwavering loyalty to his wife and family, which is beyond respectable. I also didn't really get the excitement over First Lady Michelle Obama, i wasn't paying much attention either, but during the DNC, I was flipping through channels and stumbled upon her speech. It didn't just move me, it instantly made me realize why everyone loved her. She has heart, honest emotion, and a voice that is unwavering. As the quote goes, "behind every great man is a great woman".
Johnny Boy cannot confirm that the First Lady will be here on Thursday, but if she is, I will be super excited. The evening is titled:
Estamos Unidos | We Are One: an evening with President Barack Obama in Miami – featuring emcee Eva Longoria and a performance by Sheila E.
I mean Sheila E., who doesn't love her?? Tickets don't come cheap though, starting at a limited number of $500 tickets for Young Professionals to $40,000 to be an Event Chair, but remember change always starts with just one. Guest Arrival time is at 3:15pm. If you would like to purchase tickets, click here
