President Obama is returning to Los Angeles on Oct. 10 for fundraising, including a roundtable discussion at the home of J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath.

The event will raise money for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, with tickets priced at $33,400-per-person, the maximum allowed per year to a party committee.

That same day, Obama also will attend what is being billed as a performance by a “special guest” at an as-yet undisclosed private home in Pacific Palisades. Tickets started at $1,000-per-person, with proceeds going to the Democratic Hope Fund, which is raising for Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee.

That evening, Obama is scheduled to attend a dinner fundraiser at the home of designer Michael Smith, with tickets starting at $10,000 per person and proceeds also going to the Democratic Hope Fund. Smith’s partner, former HBO executive James Costos, is U.S. Ambassador to Spain.

Meanwhile, that same day, Kanye West is performing a concert for the DNC at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco, with tickets starting at $250-per-person.

News of Obama’s Los Angeles visits were first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
