Do you know how popular President Obama is in a crowd of law enforcement and military personnel?
I used his books for the lucky draw portion of the The Women of Color Empowered luncheon on May 13, at the New Hong Kong Restaurant. Lucky draw is just a fun raffle at the end to give away small prizes.
There were six bags of Godiva chocolates and two of Obama’s books, “The Audacity of Hope” and “Dreams from my Father.”
The winners of the raffle could choose between the chocolates and the books.
Five of the winners wanted the candy, only one preferred the book. Sadly, the last winner glumly took the other book when nothing else was left. ♦
