Your keys to VIP Status during the Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO

Enjoy the good things in life by taking a trip on the National Restaurant Association Political Action Committee (NRA PAC) Bus, during the Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO, August 11-13 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.

NRA Board Member
Dickie Brennan wants your
support to PAC the Bus!
PAC the Bus, a hospitality suite with a twist, is a luxury tour vehicle to be located right on the EXPO show floor between the Louisiana Restaurant Association’s booth and the Great American Seafood Cook-Off. Complete with cuisine, courtesy of Centerplate, and libations, courtesy of Champagne Beverage, a trip on the Bus will include relaxing chair massages for those who make an NRA PAC contribution.

“We wanted to do something other than a dinner this year to meet Louisiana’s fundraising goal for the NRA PAC,” said NRA Board Member Dickie Brennan. “PAC the Bus was developed to be a benefit for those attending the EXPO who may want to support the advocacy of our industry in Washington and take a reprieve from the bustling activities of the EXPO Show Floor.”

On Saturday, 2012 NRA Chairwoman Roz Mallet will board the Bus to meet PAC donors and thank them for their contributions to support the ever growing need for political advocacy for the nation’s restaurant industry.

Want to be a VIP?

To Board the Bus—First Class, you are invited to make a $500 NRA PAC contribution. You and a guest will experience the amenities of the Bus for the entire three-day EXPO. At this level, you will be recognized as an NRA PAC the Bus Sponsor in all remaining materials. Sponsorships are non-transferrable.

Five hundred bucks a little too rich for your blood? You’re in luck. Become a Prestigious Passenger and you will enjoy the exclusivity of the NRA PAC Bus for a $150 contribution during the three-day EXPO. At this level, you will partake in the amenities of the Bus to benefit the advocacy of our industry in the U.S. Congress.

Only in town for a day? Take a Day Trip on the NRA PAC Bus! For only $75 per person, you will delight in the camaraderie, cuisine, libations and amenities. Rest in luxury and know that your time is well spent and for an excellent cause.
