THE STORY:

I am 61 years old and live in Medford, Oregon. I have been involved in the Democratic Party for a number of years. I was a county and state delegate in Nevada in 2008 for Hillary Clinton. This year I was honored with being selected as a Hillary Clinton delegate in Oregon for this year's DNC national convention in Philadelphia. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to be a delegate at a national convention. This was a dream come true when I got the phone call. I was notified of this by the state party on Tuesday, June 7. Because I work as a classified employee, part-time in education, I do not have enough funds to pay for my trip on such short notice as I am not paid during the summer months, so the timing of getting this offer was a bit bad. This fundraiser is for travel expenses, which, according to the state party, run approximately $2,000. Right now I am looking at a $1,000 goal to at least get the plane expenses and perhaps money towards a room. According to the delegate form sent by the state Democratic Party in Oregon, accommodations, which require a four-night stay, will cost $226 a night. Accommodations are at the Crown Plaza Hotel in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. This runs to $904 total. I estimate the roundtrip plane ticket to run $500 to $700 from what I have seen online, possibly more if I can't get the economy seat early. Incidentals such as transportation to and from the convention, meals, and miscellaneous expenses $300-400. The convention is from July 25-July 29. Because Oregon held its primary and its conventions so late, this fundraiser had to be held on short notice. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and doubt I would ever get the chance again to go. It would be a great honor to participate in this historic election by selecting the next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton. I would appreciate any contribution you can make to help get me there to Philadelphia. Right now the goal is $600 to pay for the plane ticket, funds of which I will need in a matter of days so I do not have to withdraw my name. I do not know yet how much I will need for the room, whether or not I will share it with another delegate. I do not believe at this time the cheapest seats are still available. Thank you so much, Susan Nunes
