President Obama to Return to L.A. for Fundraisers

President Obama will return to Los Angeles next week for another round of fundraising, including an event for congressional candidates at the Bel-Air home of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and his wife, environmental activist Cindy Horn.

His agenda also includes a breakfast fundraiser at the home of Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer. The event will raise money for Democratic Senate candidates.

The event at the Horns will be a dinner on Thursday night, April 7, to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Also expected to attend is House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and DCCC chairman Ben Ray Lujan.

Ticket prices start at $15,000 per couple, which includes a photo op and dinner, although those are subject to limited availability, according to the invite. Co-host tickets are $33,400 per couple, with a photo and dinner. Co-chairs who pay $66,800 per couple gain access to the dinner and photo as well as a VIP reception.

A long list of co-chairs and co-hosts are already listed for the event, including Marcy Carsey, J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath, Norman and Lyn Lear, Barbra Streisand and James Brolin, Chuck Ortner, Andy Spahn and Jennifer Perry and Peg Yorkin.

Obama will stay overnight in Los Angeles, and the next morning, on April 8, he will attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, at the Maguires’ home in Los Angeles. Tickets to the event are $33,400 per couple.

He then will travel to San Francisco, where he will attend additional fundraisers.

Obama was last in Los Angeles on Feb. 11 for a series of fundraisers, as well as a private dinner with showbiz figures. He attended a fundraiser at the Horns’ home in May, 2014, to raise money for Democratic House and Senate candidates.
