President Barack Obama is returning to Los Angeles on Feb. 11 to raise money for a series of fundraising events organized by the Democratic National Committee. The visit is being billed as one of his final treks for Southern California campaign cash as president.

According to an invite, the hosts for the reception are entertainment lawyer Aaron Rosenberg and his husband, “Scorpion” executive producer Danny Rose (who the Advocate dubbed the “world famous unicorn grooms”). The event will be held at a private home in Hancock Park, with tickets starting at $1,000 per guest and rising to $33,400 per couple. The latter includes VIP seating, photo line reception and a co-host greeting.

Another event is a small dinner, also in Hancock Park, with tickets at $10,000 per person.

The proceeds will go to the Democratic Hope Fund, with the first $2,500 going toward debt retirement for the 2012 Obama for America campaign. Additional proceeds will go to the Democratic National Committee.

The event will be held two nights after the New Hampshire primary.

    $33.400 for a photo op, who in town DOESN’T have a pic with Barry at their home and/or office? People you have to pay to come to your house to party with…are called hookers.
