SHARE Obama offering 10 seats at election night Grant Park Obamafest for new internet donors

DES MOINES, IA.–While Barack Obama’s team is planning the VIP treatment to big dollar donors, the campaign, in its latest small dollar fund-raising gimmick is trying to lure new contributors by promising them a backstage pass and front row seats for his election night celebration at Chicago’s Grant park. Those who contribute for the first time by Sunday midnight get a chance to win one of five hotel-ticket packages for the winner and a guest.

An appeal from Obama just popped in the e-mail:

I want you to be there with me on Election Night when the results come in.

We’re planning a big event that will include tens of thousands of supporters in Grant Park in downtown Chicago.

We’re saving some of the best seats in the house for 5 people who make their first donation to the campaign before Sunday at midnight.

If you’re selected, you can bring a guest, and we’ll fly you in and put you up in a hotel for the night. You’ll go backstage at the big event and — no matter what happens — you’ll have a front row seat to history as we celebrate the supporters who got us over the finish line.
