President Barack Obama hits Chicago next Friday for a series of high dollar fund-raisers at the Chicago Cultural Center and private dinners and, I'm told, he will be spending the night.

Obama fund-raiser Jordan Kaplan--with the Obama political fund-raising operation since Obama was an Illinois Senator--is handling the events. This may be Obama's last big fund-raising visit for awhile.

Obama was last in Chicago a few days ago--for the May 20-21 NATO Summit. That was his 12th trip back to his adopted home since becoming president.

The contribution sliding scale for the Chicago Cultural Center reception is $1,000 to $15,000 per-person to host. The private dinner at the home of Tracey and Chaka Patterson donation is $35,800 per-person or $71,600 for a couple.

As first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times Stella Foster, the June 1 Chicago Cultural Center event hosts are:
MARILYN KATZ
STEVE KOCH
JILL & JOHN LEVI
JOHN W. ROGERS JR.
BETTYLU & PAUL SALTZMAN
TAMAR NEWBERGER & ANDY SCHAPIRO
ANDREA & ALAN SOLOW
GRACE TSAO-WU
NEIL BLUHM
F. BRUCE COHEN
STEVE COHEN
LES CONEY
KEVIN CONLON
WENDY FRIEDMAN
JACK HARTMAN
VICKI & BRUCE HEYMAN
