When President Obama swings south down the Peninsula next Sunday (Sept. 25), he will follow his afternoon fundraising gathering at the Woodside home of Sandi and John Thompson with another opportunity for locals to open their wallets on behalf of the president's re-election effort, this one at the Atherton home of Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, according to the Oakland Tribune.
Guests will pay $35,800 per plate to attend that fundraising dinner, which will include a question-and-answer session, according to the Tribune.
At the Woodside event, which is set to begin at 4 p.m., a mere $2,500 gets you in the door. For $7,500 (or $10,000 for you and a friend), you can have a photo taken with the president and participate in a reception for him.
On Monday, Sept. 26, the president is scheduled to hold a Town Hall meeting on the economy at Mountain View's LinkedIn, according to that company. Mr. Obama plans to answer questions about job creation and the economy from LinkedIn members across the country.
"Following the Town Hall, White House Administration officials will continue to engage in the conversation with LinkedIn members about putting America back to work," according to a press release from LinkedIn.
