DemDaily: Play Ball for Paul

March 19, 2018

If you enjoy baseball and want to help a good political cause, we have the perfect opportunity for you to do both!

Many of you knew Paul Booth, one of our country's greatest organizers and a leader in the national progressive movement, who we sadly lost in January.  Paul was also a great baseball fan, and to raise funds for his Legacy Trust we are raffling off five Washington Nationals baseball games!

For just $50 a chance, you have the opportunity to win four tickets to one of five games to see the National League East Champions play from just twelve rows above their dugout!

The Trust will be used to support, build upon and continue Paul Booth's lifework to bend the arc toward justice for all.  Funds will be used toward a memorial celebration of his life, to directly donate to the nonprofits Paul wanted to support, and to launch a joint mentorship and internship program created in Paul's name.

The Games

April 12th, Thursday: Washington Nationals v. Colorado Rockies @7:05pm

May 6th, Sunday: Washington Nationals v. Philadelphia Phillies @1:35pm

June 21st, Thursday: Washington Nationals v. Baltimore Orioles @7:05pm

August 4th, Saturday: Washington Nationals v. Cincinatti Reds @7:05pm

September 20th, Thursday: Washington Nationals v. New York Mets @7:05pm



How It Works
Just click on the game of your choosing to contribute and enter for a chance to win four incredible seats to that ballgame (a $320 value)!  For every $50 you contribute, your name will be entered again and increases your chance of winning.  Contributions to the Legacy Trust account are not tax deductible.

Deadline to Enter:  Thursday, April 5th @5:00pm.
The winning entries will be drawn by Heather Booth and will be announced April 6th.

In loving memory of Paul Booth
1943 - 2018
Friend, Family, Organizer,
Leader of Social Change
 "We are in this together. We will fight it together. And we will win it together."
