First Lady Michelle Obama is returning to Los Angeles later this month to raise money for the Democratic National Committee.

The first lady will appear at a Jan. 29 evening event at the home of producer-writer Phil Rosenthal and his wife, Monica Horan, with tickets starting at $1,000 per person.

An event had been scheduled at their home in October, but it was canceled because of the government shutdown.

The fundraiser includes a “co-chair clutch,” in which a smaller group of donors meets with the first lady, with tickets set at $32,400 per person, according to the invite. Tickets are $2,500 for a photo line and reception for up to two people, $4,000 for a photo line and reception for up to four family members, and $10,000 per person for the reception, photo line and a discussion.

In November, President Obama trekked to Los Angeles to speak to employees at Dreamworks Animation and to raise money for Senate and House campaign committees, as well as the DNC.

The first lady’s visit is part of a fundraising swing on the west coast.
