Wednesday May 27–the day after the Supreme Court delivers its Prop 8 ruling– President Barack Obama arrives in the City of Angels for a fundraiser at the Beverly Hilton Hotel where Jennifer Hudson and Earth Wind and Fire will be headlining the $1,000 a person reception. For $2,500 you can get the VIP seating at the reception, and if you’re feeling like a big spender, there’s a bonus $30,400 per couple dinner at what will be Obama’s first appearance in LA since he took office. I wonder if there will be a dessert? As of press time there is no information on the menu…
Organizers are hoping to raise $3 million, and PR guru/political consultant Andy Spahn, one of the event’s organizers, told Wilshire & Washington:
We will meet our goal. It is a tough economy, but there is tremendous excitement about Barack Obama’s first appearance here as president of the United States.
And over the musical guests! But gosh darn it, I want to know what food they’re serving!
