President Barack Obama will head back to Hollywood this coming week for another pair of fundraisers.

According to Variety, President Obama will attend a Thursday April 7 event for congressional candidates in Bel-Air at the home of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and his wife Cindy.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman Ben Ray Lujan will also attend the event, which is to raise money for the DCCC.

Ticket prices for the Horn event start at $15,000 per couple, while co-host tickets are going for $33,400 per couple.

Couples attending the event as guests and co-hosts will be treated to a photo op and dinner, although the meal and photo for those paying $15,000 are subject to limited availability.

Co-chairs, who must pay $66,800 per couple, will also receive the dinner and photo, in addition to having access to a VIP reception.

Co-chairs and co-hosts attending the Horn event include Marcy Carsey, J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath, Norman and Lyn Lear, and Barbra Streisand and James Brolin, among others.

The following morning, on April 8, Obama will attend a breakfast fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee at the Los Angeles home of actor Tobey Maguire.

Tickets to the Maguire breakfast are $33,400 per couple.

The President is scheduled to fly to San Francisco for another round of fundraisers following the Maguire event.

Obama’s last visit to Los Angeles, on February 11, created a quagmire of road closures and delays for commuters.
