"Disc-O-bama" with DJ Sku


From the organizers: Obama supporters aim to mobilize youth, increase political involvement, fundraise for the democratic party, and dance for America by hosting a disco themed dance party at The Granada.Disc-O-bama's 70s theme is intended to be a fun and carefree way for young adults to get their groove on while becoming more politically involved by registering to vote and contributing financially to the Obama campaign.The concept for the event originated with KU alum Adrienne Landry, who was challenged by her former Columbia University graduate school professor Jenik Radon to develop a grassroots fundraising idea that would appeal to youth in middle America. Radon is extensively involved with the Obama campaign and is currently on the Movement for Change's NY Finance Committee.Disc-O-bama has inspired numerous local residents to contribute. Private contributions from local Lawrence residents have covered many of the expenses for the event. Mike Logan, owner of The Granada, donated his venue. All publicity and t-shirt designs were produced by local graphic designer Patrick Giroux, who is also the Art Director for Lawrence.com.The dance party is open to anyone 18 and over. 18-20 pay a $10 cover charge 21 and over pay only $8 at the door. All profits will be donated directly to Barack Obama's Movement for Change campaign.Disc-O-bama is a private, grassroots event and is not affiliated with the Movement for Change campaign.
