$38,500 Dinner with a Side of Obama

President Obama will host two fundraisers, one in Woodside and one in Atherton.

Before hitting the political trail, President Barack Obama has two important stops to make Sunday: former Symantec CEO John W. Thompson’s home in Woodside and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's home in Atherton, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

If your budget's a little tight this month, you can head to the meet and greet at the Thompson residence for a mere $2,500 before heading to the Sandberg home where a dinner plate will cost you $38,500. But no matter how expensive the food you’re consuming, the Q&A with the President belongs in the “Priceless” category in a cheesy Mastercard commercial.

Though photos with the president will cost $7,500 at the Thompson home, according to TechCrunch, the framed picture over your mantle to impress your guests could be a runner-up for priceless.

Check back on Redwood City Patch for photos of the hoopla.

I would not even walk across the street to meet this man let alone pay money to eat with him.

If I had the money to spare, I'd sign up for the meet-n-greet, the dinner and the photo op. It would be an honor to meet President Obama.

I wouldn't walk on the same side of the street as this Muslim, let alone dine with him. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

I would even walk on the same side of the street as this Muslim, let alone eat with him... WAKE UP MERICA! Somehow my comment is not being posted........What has happened to Free Speech? I can only guess I have offended the left..........

Ignorant, hateful comments. Patch is really going downhill. The first amendment simply protects you from Congress passing a law keeping you from expressing your opinion. If Patch, a privately-owned site, wants to erase comments by anyone, they can. Just as you have the right to tell someone standing in your living room to shut up because you don't like people of other races. The President isn't Muslim, by the way. But the chances of you understanding that are about on par as you understanding the First Amendment.

Sorry Susan, I am neither ignorant or hateful. I am only voicing my opinion, (just as you have) per what this man has said several times.....stating he is indeed a Muslim. In addition to that, all you have to do is look at what has happened to America since he has been in office. Not a pretty picture. Let us agree to disagree and leave it at that.......
Mary Dunckel Worth September 24, 2011 at 02:37 AM
Susan, If you are interested in having proof of Obama's saying he, himself, is a Muslim, send me your email address and I will forward videos when he was a community organizer (saying these exact word) before becoming President.

I agree with Susan - hateful and ignorant comments have no place here.
Diana Reddy September 25, 2011 at 03:29 PM
I agree with Susan also. We are rich in Redwood City because of our diversity, which includes diversity in our points of view. There is no room for hateful and ignorant comments, which are divisive and paralyzing for our community. Having said that, I regret that so much anger exists around what "has happened to America since he has been in office," and there is no anger whatsoever about the history behind how we got to this place in the first place.

Personally, I don't think any of the commenters on this article are actually the people the announcement is for. This is for people who are wealthy enough to own stock, avoid taxes and live in Atherton and Woodside... and still claim to be liberals ;).
Sarah H. September 25, 2011 at 04:23 PM
Amen, Lou! :) That being said, I'm saddened by the extremely ignorant comment above. If the commenter doesn't like Obama's policies or politics, fine. But to generalize her dislike for the man by using his religion (or alleged religion - whatever it is it doesn't really matter), is insulting to everyone.

If you are referring to youtube videos consisting of soundbites and videos taken out of context, I woldn't waste my time.
Barb Valley September 25, 2011 at 06:49 PM
Say hello to the President $2500 Have picture taken with the President $7500 Dinner with the President $38,500 Living in a country where you can freely express your opinion and even spread lies about the President .... Priceless.
Mary Dunckel Worth September 25, 2011 at 08:51 PM
So very true, Lou.........
Susan Swope September 25, 2011 at 10:20 PM
It is being deleted as inappropriate. President Obama is not Muslim and you know it. Dislike him if you wish. Vote for someone else next November. But show respect for his office. Didn't your momma raise you right?
Susan Swope September 25, 2011 at 10:22 PM
Right on, Barb, as usual.
Joseph Carrillo May 04, 2012 at 08:00 AM
If I owned two cars I would sell both just to see Obama. This would also be great publicity for how over priced meeting the president is. A lot of Americans think they are poor, but still own a car. If these fake poor sold their car and got a bike they may just be able to see Obama.
