Last-Minute Push for Obama’s L.A. Visit

E-mails went out on Sunday making another pitch for President Obama’s fund-raiser on Monday with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.). The event at the California Science Center is being jointly sponsored by the Democratic National Committee and the Boxer campaign, so money will go to both.

The $250-per-person low-dollar tickets apparently have sold out, and what is still available are $2,500-per-person tickets for a VIP reception along with the event itself, which will feature India.Arie as entertainment.

Also still available are tickets to a more intimate $17,600-per-person dinner with Obama and Boxer at the nearby Natural History Museum, an event that also will include a photo line. The dinner is capped at 175 people, and has been expected to sell out. While this has been a tough fund-raising environment, there’s also been a lot of events selling right down to the wire.

During Obama’s last fund-raising swing through Los Angeles last year, in which Jennifer Hudson was the entertainment at the Beverly Hilton, the lowest ticket price was dropped to $1,000-per-person in the weeks before the event in light of the bad economy. Organizers, however, did meet their goals.
