U.S. Senator Kay Hagan talks with Catawba County residents during her
UPDATE: The dinner with Obama is TONIGHT, not Thursday.

Looks like Senator Kay Hagan (D. NC) might have some big dinner plans tonight:

President Barack Obama has invited the 20 women elected to the U.S. Senate for dinner at the White House on Tuesday, another chapter in his effort to develop closer ties with Congress.

Since March, Obama has taken pains to reach out to lawmakers, trying to find common ground to end a two-year fight over federal deficits, and moving forward on top legislative priorities such as immigration reform.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, said on Twitter that Obama had invited all women in the Senate. Senator Kelly Ayotte, a New Hampshire Republican, confirmed the bipartisan invitation to Reuters. - Huffington Post, 4/22/13
There's a good chance all or the majority of these Senators will attend this dinner.  If any of the Senators attending the dinner are your Senator, please call them and remind them that you're against cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and that you support comprehensive immigration reform:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
