Obama to Attend Owings Mills Fundraiser
President Barack Obama will stop by Owings Mills before his appearance in downtown Baltimore Tuesday, according to the Baltimore Sun.
President Barack Obama will attend a high-profile fundraiser lunch at the home of an Owings Mills developer Tuesday before an appearance in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Obama will visit the home of campaign donors Josh and Genine Fidler, owners of Chesapeake Realty Partners, one of the area's largest development firms, according to the Sun.
The Sun reports that guests will pay up to $50,000 to attend the lunch, a long cry from the donations ranging from $250 to $10,000 to gain entry to the event in Baltimore, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore at the Inner Harbor, according to WJZ-TV.
It's also more than the recent VIP fundraiser George Clooney held in Los Angeles, which cost guests $40,000 to attend and raised $15 million, according to the Huffington Post.
Records indicate that the Fidlers live on Greenspring Valley Road. The effect of the presidential visit on traffic is unknown.
Obama last visited the Baltimore suburbs in February 2011, when he praised the science and technology department at Parkville Middle School.
