Obama to Come to Final Bay Area Fundraiser for 2012 Campaign

President Barack Obama will return to the Bay Area on Oct. 8 for his sixth fundraising visit in the last year.

A concert and rally — for which the musical guests are yet to be announced — will be held at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Grove Street in the city’s Civic Center.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. event are selling at $100 for “Muni;” $250 for “Cable Car;” $1,000 for “Ferry,” which includes preferred seating; and $2,500 for “Bay,” which includes premium seating.

The $7,500 “Golden State” package gets you premium seating plus a photo opportunity with the president. And then you can pay an additional $2,500 for each guest you want in the photo with you.

It wasn’t clear Thursday whether this will be his only event in the Bay Area. He usually does one big rally-type event and several smaller, more exclusive and expensive events during the same visit. He’ll be in Los Angeles on Oct. 7.

Obama’s most recent visit, in July, included fundraisers in Oakland and Piedmont.
