President Barack Obama will attend a fundraising dinner at the Piedmont home of M. Quinn Delaney and Wayne Jordan on July 23, according to KCBS political reporter Doug Sovern.
The dinner will follow a larger fundraising reception at the Fox Theater in Oakland, which is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. the same day.
Tickets for the Piedmont dinner are $35,800 per person. That includes admission to the Fox Theater reception as well.
Sovern tweeted information about the dinner and its hosts Monday evening.
Piedmont City Administrator Geoffrey Grote and Acting Police Chief Scott Wyatt said Tuesday that they have not been notified of the Presidential visit.
This will be President Obama's second visit to Piedmont. In June 2007, while still a senator, he attended a $2,300-a-plate fundraising luncheon at the Delaney/Jordan home; others in attendance included Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong.
Both Delaney, an attorney and the president and founder of Oakland's Akonadi Foundation, and her husband Jordan, a real estate investor, are regular and generous donors to the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates.
In 2007, each gave $50,000 to the Vote Hope 527 group supporting Obama's candidacy, according to this San Francisco Chronicle article. They have also contributed steadily to the Democratic National Committee and a variety of Congressional candidates, in California and elsewhere.
During the past year they contributed $250,000 to Emily's List, a nonprofit group supporting women in politics, and each donated $500 or more to Piedmont Vice Mayor Margaret Fujioka's reelection campaign.
