Obama is attending three basketball-themed cash grabs in and around Lincoln Center [View all]
President Obama is heading back to New York City Wednesday to shoot some hoops — and net some serious dough — at a trifecta of basketball-themed fundraisers.
Chicago may be Obama’s hometown, but Manhattan has been the President’s home court for raising campaign cash.
Obama’s latest trip to the political ATM that is the Big Apple will feature cash grabs — more like cash dunks — hosted by NBA immortal Michael Jordan and other current and former hardcourt stars. The events are expected to sink at least $3 million into the President’s campaign kitty.
The “Obama Classic” will take place in and around Lincoln Center and includes a $250 per-person autograph signing event, a $5,000-per-player skills camp and shoot-around, and a $20,000 per-plate dinner co-hosted by Jordan for 120 paying guests.
