Obama to Return to L.A. in Early October

President Obama will return to Los Angeles for what is described as a big fundraising event, with a date tentatively set for Oct. 7.

This will likely be Obama’s final major fundraiser before the election, and organizers are planning several components geared toward different levels of donor.

No entertainment has been announced. In his final Hollywood-centric fundraiser before the 2008 election, Barbra Streisand performed for Obama at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Combined with a high-dollar dinner at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, the evening raised more than $10 million, one of the most lucrative evenings for a L.A. political fundraiser.
