WASHINGTON--President Obama and First Lady Michelle--the Democrats two top draws--will make a rare joint fund-raising appearence when they headline a Sept. 20 dinner in New York, topped with a performance by songstress Alicia Keys.

The event is billed as a "fall gala dinner" at Gotham Hall in Manhattan, with the money to go to the Obama 2012 fund-raising committee and the Democratic National Committee. The tiered pricing makes this a high end event.

Includes Photoline Reception and Dinner with the President and First Lady
