President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit two Palo Alto homes on Thursday, June 6, to raise funds for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The chair of that committee, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, and Sen. Charles Schumer of New York are expected to be accompanying the president.
President Obama is scheduled to arrive at Moffett Field Thursday afternoon and depart on Friday morning.
Tickets are $2,500 per person to attend a 5 p.m. reception in the Palo Alto home of Marci & Mike McCue, and $32,400 per person (the maximum allowed per calendar year) to attend a 6:30 p.m. dinner at the Palo Alto home of Vinod and Neeru Khosla. The maximum donation includes opportunities for discussion and photos, according to the program for the evening.
"Just as he helped House Democrats recently, the president is back in town to help us hold the Senate," said event spokesman Wade Randlett in a letter. "Both events will be at private homes, so will be especially intimate. With key (second-term) issues ranging from immigration reform to climate change to trying again on gun violence prevention, the stakes for holding the Senate (in the November 2014 election) couldn't be higher."
Khosla is a venture capitalist noted for his interest in cutting-edge green enterprises. Click here to read about his June 2010 talk on green technologies.
Khosla gave $1 million in 2012 to Priorities USA Action, a political action committee that spent $66 million to defeat Republicans, according to Federal Election Commission records and OpenSecrets.org, the website of the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics.
