Tickets now on sale for Progress Michigan’s annual fundraiser featuring The Daily Show’s Al Madrigal


I consider Eclectablog to be a partner with a number of progressive groups here in Michigan and across the country. But the one group with which I have the closest partnership with is Progress Michigan. No other groups does more work on behalf of a whole host of progressive issues than Progress Michigan. Whether its the environment, privatization of government services to for-profit corporations like the odious Aramark, immigration, or government malfeasance, Progress Michigan is there to fight the good fight and hold lawmakers, policymakers, and others accountable. And that’s merely a partial list.

That is why Eclectablog is a proud member of the host committee for Progress Michigan’s upcoming fundraiser. The event will be held at the Rackham Auditorium in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, June 3rd. The event will be emceed by the “Fake Rick Snyder” and will feature stand-up comedy from former touring comedian and Lansing City Councilwoman Kathie Dunbar and special guest Al Madrigal from The Daily Show.

Tickets vary in price. Students can get in for $25. General public tickets are $35. If you made a donation in 2015 prior to April 1st, you qualify for the $25 ticket price, as well. These tickets are available HERE.

For those of you with a bit more money to contribute, you can go online and purchase tickets for $60 which earns you second tier seating or purchase tickets for $100 which will score you a first tier seat.

And, just for fun and to be sure everyone has a shot at “The Best Seat in the House”, Progress Michigan will randomly choose 1 ticket purchaser who will be able to bring a guest and sit on the stage on a comfortable couch during the performance. FUN!

Finally, if you or your organization would like to sponsor the event, you can do so at a variety of levels. That information is here:
