While we had hoped to invite you to the President's acceptance speech in person, we would like to offer the next best thing - a chance to come together as a community once again, and celebrate this historic moment for our city and our country.
"We would like to invite you to the Charlotte In 2012 Convention Host Committee's Acceptance Speech Viewing party. It will be a special time that we can experience together.
