President Barack Obama will be returning to the Bay Area this week to raise more money for his re-election campaign with three events on the Peninsula.
Obama will first attend a fundraising dinner at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Atherton home of philanthropists Lisa and Doug Goldman. Tickets for the event cost $35,800 per person.
The president will then attend a large rally at Redwood City's Fox Theatre at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Premium seating for the event starts at $1,000 per person.
The rally is expected to attract protesters from Occupy Redwood City, who plan to assemble outside the theater to protest what they say are civil liberties abuses abroad and collusion with corporate interests at home. The last of Obama's three fundraising events in the Bay Area is a campaign roundtable with the Asian-American/Pacific Islander community scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday at the Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto. Tickets for that event also cost $35,800 per person.
Obama last visited the Bay Area in February, when he attended a small fundraising dinner and a larger rally, both in San Francisco.
