First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to be in Minnesota on March 16 to raise money for President Obama’s presidential campaign. Mrs. Obama is scheduled to hold the fundraiser at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
Donors are being asked to give between $250 and $10,000 to attend the reception. Donors who give $1,000 will get “preferred viewing.” Couples who give $5,000 will get a photo with the First Lady. $10,000 donations will include a “host greet.”
Mrs. Obama has been more active on the campaign trail in recent months as it gets closer to the 2012 election. For example, she attended a fundraiser for the Obama campaign in Louisville last week.
The fundraising letter, sent by Lou and Carol Frillman, suggested this may be the only opportunity for donors to see Michelle Obama this election cycle.
“We believe that this is a (sic) excellent opportunity to meet the most loved, admired, and respected First Lady of our time. Will she be back in Minneapolis before November?
Who knows? So why take the chance?”
President Obama last visited Minnesota in August. He held a town hall rally in Cannon Falls to tout his proposal to boost the economy.
