She is running an incredibly left and progressive agenda and I am holding a house party fundraiser and community conversation for the campaign on [party details] at [location details]. We will focus on the [name letter and part of the platform that you want to focus on]. All donated funds will be matched 8 to 1 so your contribution will be very important for our campaign activities. Will you come out to the meeting and support this campaign?
