President Barack Obama is returning to the Bay Area next week for a Democratic fundraiser in San Francisco.
Obama will attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Monday at the new SFJAZZ Center in the city’s Hayes Valley neighborhood, according to an invitation posted on the DNC’s website.
The president last came to the Bay Area in June, when he attended Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee fundraisers in Palo Alto and Portola Valley.
Tickets for next week’s event start at $500. The SFJAZZ Center, which opened in January, is located at 201 Franklin St.
As with Obama’s other visits, Monday’s will be accompanied by demonstrations. Code Pink and other groups plan to gather outside the event to protest the administration’s use of drone strikes against overseas targets.
