Eclectafundraiser update: News + new sponsors including PLATINUM sponsor American Federation of Teachers


It’s been a busy week getting ready for tomorrow’s big event at Corner Brewery (I can’t get myself to call it ABC Microbrewery, call me Old School.) A fresh batch of t-shirts have arrived, over 100 Eclectagrog beer glasses are ready to hand out, and the Dean of Twitter stole is ready to bestow upon former Congressman John Dingell.

Also, we brought on some new sponsors including AFT Michigan, Save Michigan Public Schools, and RK Communications at the BRONZE level, AFSCME’s national organization at the GOLD level, and the American Federation of Teachers at the PLATINUM level.

Here is the list of current sponsors:


  • Planned Parenthood Affiliates of Michigan
  • Zack Pohl
  • Doug and Joanna Scott
  • Clean Water Action
  • DiSano Strategies
  • ACLU of Michigan
  • Michigan Democratic Party
  • AFT Michigan
  • RK Communications
  • 12th Congressional District Democratic Organization
  • Save Michigan Public Schools


  • Michigan Nurses Association
  • Michigan AFL-CIO
  • Matt and Rene Greff – Arbor Brewing Company


  • Progress Michigan


  • American Federation of Teachers (national)

If you would like to become a sponsor, it’s not too late. It’s great exposure for you, your candidate, or your organization and you’ll be helping ensure that Eclectablog writers continue to be compensated for their fine work. Email me at for details.

In addition to Eclectablog t-shirts, we will be having a raffle of sorts, similar to last year. Tickets are $5 a piece or six for $20. In front of each item will be a container. You put your ticket in the container for the things you want. You can put as many as you want in for more chances to win. After the program is over, we’ll draw the winners. Here’s what you can “bid” on:

  • Photo by Anne C. Savage of the U.S. Capitol Building at sunset on the evening of Barack Obama’s second inauguration – printed on canvas
  • Photo by Anne C. Savage of a lemon blasting out of water – printed on canvas
  • Photo by Anne C. Savage of a Service Berry Tree – printed on canvas

  • Two Eclectablog swag packages consisting of three Eclectagrog glasses – two from last year, one from this year (you’ll leave with a set of four) and an Eclectablog t-shirt
  • An Eclectagrog beer tasting with me and Anne featuring two types of our homebrew and appetizers from our bountiful organic garden

We hope to see you there. Please RSVP HERE so that we know you’re coming and invite all your progressive friends!
