Message from Waylon Lewis:
I’m getting older, and even a little more mature—it’s been a rough, but wonderful few years.
This July marks my 37th bday, and instead of hosting the usual little swim party/BBQ, I’m excited to use this celebration to support a good cause. I’m Buddhist, a green ambassador, a bike lover…but I can’t think of any one effort that influences “enlightened society” from Supreme Court Justices to clean energy funding to alternative transportation, affordable housing and the arts more than…the 2012 election.

Here in Colorado, no one organization registered more voters in 2010 than New Era Colorado. They focus on engaging young folk in politics, which was key in the 2008 election.

The 2012 election won’t be won in November 2012. It’ll be won starting now, and over the next year-and-a-half. New Era needs and deserves support from the leaders of Boulder community—so let’s have a good time, mix, mingle and celebrate a beautiful summer eve at my home.

I’d be grateful if you’d come on as a host, at the level you’re inspired. My hope is to raise $20,000 total, which I’ve done more than (with tons of help) many times for various causes. We’re inviting the business, natural products, yoga and Buddhist and green communities, and civic leaders in Boulder. The party will be limited in size, and made up of the women and men behind the leading non-profits, arts orgs, tech companies, political efforts and adventure groups in Boulder, as well as my personal friends who’ve been there for me and love drinking local brew on a beautiful day with some nice live music

It should be a schmoozefest without parallel. ~ WL.

Please walk/bus/bike if possible (and have fun doing so!). Appropriate attire requested:
