(ABC News) Fresh off an all-day Friday fundraising swing that landed close to $5 million for the 2012 campaign, President Obama and the first lady are kicking off the week with another round of money events expected to raise at least $1.2 million more.
The president this afternoon will host a private, roundtable discussion with 20 of his wealthiest supporters at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C. Tickets to the event Obamas 109th of the election were $35,800 apiece, a campaign official said.
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama will travel to New York City to host a colorful duo of fundraisers that include a bowling party at Chelsea Piers and cocktails with Hollywood stars.
The first event, billed as a Family Game Night, will draw at least 400 supporters at the 300 New York bowling alley on Manhattans West Side, a campaign official said. The invitation lists three tiers of ticket prices: from $150 to attend as a guest (no bowling); $250 per person for bowling shoes and a spot on a lane; and $5,000 for bowling and a photo with the first lady.

Really disappointed that Victor Cruz of the NY Giants has decided to help host this event.
I thought these were the people he’s been complaining about, who don’t pay enough taxes. Guess their tax money is going into his campaign coffers, huh?
Isn’t that special. I can’t afford $3.58 lunches but hey, more power to the King. He deserves it because, to quote an aquaintance, “he’s blaaaack and he caaaaares to much about the peeeeeeople!!!!”
Victor Cruz of the NY Giants is allowed to support Socialism as much as Supermodel Elle Macpherson;
