A Picture with Michelle Obama will cost you $10K
When first lady Michelle Obama comes home to Chicago next Tuesday, a group photo with her at a campaign fundraiser won’t come cheap.
The asking price for a ticket to a “family photo reception” is $10,000, according to an invitation to the event. The invitation specifies that there may be a maximum of six guests in the photo.
The first lady is visiting Chicago to attend a summit with Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the problem of food deserts, areas that lack access to nutritious foods. While in town, she will mix those official duties with passing the plate to benefit her husband’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
