View the details here: Gridiron Club Flyer final.pdf

For the first time in history, members of the New Jersey State Society, and a select group of other organizations, have been invited to sell tickets to the exclusive Gridiron Club Sunday Reprise. We will also be inviting prominent Jersey journalists and Garden State information and public affairs officers to come down to DC and join in the fun with us.

If you are interested, please contact us RIGHT AWAY to see if we can still get you some tickets with an email info@njss.org

You have been hearing about the 126-year-old Gridiron Club in Washington, DC, for years, with its famous journalists spoofing Republicans and Democrats in funny parodies and amazing costumes. Well now, WE are invited to their Sunday show, with a wine & beer open bar reception at 3 pm and the show from 4-6 pm. Tickets are $70 each.

If you stay over, you will also be able to take a tour of the National Press Club at 11 am Monday and have lunch in the Fourth Estate Restaurant there using a 15% discount coupon.

At the Sunday reception, we hope to bring together our New Jersey journalists and spokesmen at one location to talk informally with us. The reception is also a chance to rub elbows with some of the well-known Gridiron Club members such as:

Bob Schieffer of CBS,
David Broder and Dan Balz of The Washington Post,
Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell of NBC,
Jim Angle of Fox News,
Susan Page, Chuck Raasch & Ron Cohen of Gannett,
Mark Shields, columnist & NewsHour
John Dickerson of Slate,
David Espo of the Associated Press,
Al Hunt of Bloomberg,
Jerry Seib and Janet Hook of The Wall Street Journal,
Todd Purdam of Vanity Fair
Jeanne Cummings of Politico.

before they don their costumes and entertain us.

This event honors the journalism profession and provides scholarships to journalism students through the Gridiron Club, and therefore, $56 of each ticket is tax deductible. The NJ State Society does not profit from, or subsidize, the tickets sales, thus meeting ethics guidelines for House and Senate staffers and Members of Congress.
