Bolling offers free inaugural event

Several thousand inaugural invitations are making their way across the state to the supporters, volunteers and contributors who helped Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling win reelection last month.
Bolling will offer the event for free at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond on Jan. 14. That's not usually how it's done. Usually politicians use the tickets as a fundraiser, but this year Bolling decided to foot the $100,000 bill.
"Because this is an appreciation event, and given the economic challenges facing so many Virginians, we decided to make it a free event,'' Bolling said. "It gives us a chance to celebrate our victory with as many of our friends and supporters as possible."
Bolling will solicit sponsorships to defray costs of the event. Any extra money will be donated to an unnamed Virginia charity.
Bolling and Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell will also be offering tickets to a reenactment of Patrick Henry's famous speech - "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" -- at historic St. John's Church on Jan. 15.
