No Eastie Casino!

No Eastie Casino

This Week - Starting Tonight! - We Need Boots on the Ground in East Boston! Can You Help?
null We're building an army of volunteers to help in a variety of ways as we educate neighbors get out the vote against a casino. Please consider the ways you can volunteer this week!

Monday Night
We are looking for 5-6 volunteers to assist in making buttons and putting together packets for the polls on Tuesday. Email Celeste Myers or call her at 617-913-3332 if you can help.

We are looking for 4 more volunteers with cars to help set up and tear down signs at the polls. We are also looking for 20 more volunteers to staff the polls Tuesday. This is a great way to interact with neighbors and voters and to give them information about the casino. Email Celeste Myers or call her at 617-913-3332 if you can help.

Weekly Volunteer Meeting! Join us for the latest updates, interact with voters, and prepare materials to share with neighbors. [Note: This week, Suffolk Downs will be presenting at Eagle Hill Civic Association Meeting. If you plan to attend and are interested in seeing our analysis of the mitigation deal first so you can ask questions/hand out literature, email us to let us know...] Sacred Heart Church (303 Paris St), 6-8 p.m.

We are looking for 10 additional volunteers to call voters and prepare literature for Saturday's canvassing. Sacred Heart Church (303 Paris St), 6-8 p.m.

SUPER SATURDAY! We're looking for volunteers to hit the streets with a smiles and a stack of handouts in Eagle Hill, Jeffries Point, Orient Heights, Maverick and the Wood Island area. Meet at Sacred Heart Church (303 Paris St), 9 a.m.

Run to the Beat! Are you running to raise money for Zumix? Consider wearing some flashy No Eastie Casino gear while you're at it.

Hope to see you at one or more of these events!

The Latest on the Campaign
City Council to Vote Wed. on DateAs we've told you before, Suffolk Downs has requested November 5 - the date of the final municipal election - as the casino referendum date. The City Council is expected to vote on that date at a hearing Wednesday.

YOU Raised Over $10,000 in 10 Days!If you haven't heard yet, WE DID IT - we hit (and surpassed) our goal of raising $10,000 in just 10 days! This was done with donations of every size, from all parts of the neighborhood and several surrounding communities, and with great sacrifice from many of you. For that, we are truly thankful and appreciative. The fundraising continues, however, until the battle is won -- so even if you didn't send in your donation during the Eastie Challenge, there's still time to do so! (click here to download a description of some of the ways your donations are helping us educate every East Boston voter and defeat the casino)

Neighborhood Fundraising Challenge:
The Final Tally

Eagle Hill: 8 donors, $725
Jeffries Point: 7 donors, $1,900
Orient Heights: 4 donors, $450
Winthrop: 1 donor, $200

(This campaign has had > 100 donors, but most did not indicate that they'd like their donation to be applied toward the Neighborhood Challenge)

As you can see, Eagle Hill won in terms of the # of donors, but Jeffries Point gave more overall. As promised, there will be a pizza party, but we think it's only fair that residents from both Eagle Hill and Jeffries Point enjoy a joint pizza party for their success in both raising money and raising participation. Details to come!
