If you are going to be in Harrisburg on Oct 5th, please consider buying a ticket to this event:
Tickets are now on sale for this year's 79th annual Gridiron Dinner, which benefits the Capitol pressroom's summer internship program. We're informed that ticket sales have been massively sluggish thanks to the lousy economy and this year's budget mess.
Things are so bad, in fact, that we're giving serious consideration to pulling the plug on this year's gala if things don't pick up soon.
And that would be a real shame, since this year's Oct. 5 bash at the Harrisburg Hilton promises to be one of the best ever. Three of the four legislative caucuses are participating. We're told Gov. Ed has something special in mind. And Washington journalist Ana Marie Cox (of Wonkette fame) will be the emcee.
Once again, this is all for charity, folks. Every dime we make from the dinner goes back into the intership program so we can train the next generation of journalists.
