Big-dollar donors in Washington, D.C., are being asked to open their wallets for President Barack Obama on May 16.
DC for Obama informed supporters of a dinner featuring Obama at the restaurant Adour in the St. Regis hotel. Tickets are $35,800, and to be a host, donors must commit to raising a total of $107,400 for the event.
There will be a reception later that night at the Capital Hilton that Obama also will attend. Those tickets cost $1,000 or $2,500. To be a host, donors must commit to raising $10,000.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
