Michelle Obama Plans L.A. Fundraising Trip in October
The Syrian crisis forced President Obama to scrub his planned fundraising roundtable in Los Angeles, but first lady Michelle Obama will stand in for him at a rescheduled event set for Friday, Oct. 11.
The First Lady will be hosted by Everybody Loves Raymond creator Philip Rosenthal and his actress wife, Monica, at their Hancock Park home.
A Democratic National Committee e-mail states that the one-hour event and photo reception will include "a roundtable discussion, where she will take questions in an off-the-cuff discussion with a limited number of guests."
Tickets for the photo reception start at $1,250 per guest, while the roundtable discussion tickets range from $10,000 to $32,400 per guest.
Previously, the president was set to attend a $32,400-per-person "off the cuff" roundtable discussion with the president at the Hancock Park home of Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and her husband, composer Michael Skloff on Sept. 9.
