President Barack Obama came to the Bay Area Wednesday evening for a series of campaign fundraisers. He went to Atherton, Redwood City, and then will spend the night in San Jose.
The president’s first event for the evening was a dinner for 60 people at the Atherton home of Lisa and Doug Goldman, part of a well-known Bay Area philanthropist family and descendants of Levi Strauss. The price tag for a seat at the dinner, featuring a performance by David Crosby and Graham Nash, was $35,800. Attendees are expected to be mainly tech executives and venture capitalists.
