As the Presidential election approaches, our calendar of campaign fundraisers continues to fill. Earlier this month we had a local-sports-botching Vice-Presidential visit, and next month, the President and his wife are expected in San Francisco.
Former SF mayor and Chronicle columnist Willie Brown confirms SFist’s report, noting that the Anderson-Miner home features “a full-size, indoor basketball court, in case Obama wants to unwind with some hoops.”
According to Brown’s colleagues Matier and Ross, the dinner at the basketball court/Pac Heights mansion will be a $35,800-a-head affair for 50 guests. They say the dinner will be followed by a larger reception “at a yet-to-be-decided public venue,” with tickets ranging from $100 to $10,000.
According to SFist, the Obamas’ visit is part of a three-day West Coast tour that will also feature appearances in LA and Seattle.
President Obama was last in SF on October 25, for a $5000-per-person fundraiser at the W hotel.
