SHARE Obama in Chicago Oct. 19 for DNC funder in Lincoln Park

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago on Oct. 19, this time to headline a $10,000-per-person fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Lincoln Park home of Barbara Goodman Manilow.

The event, according to the invitation is billed as a “private seated dinner” which will include a question and answer session and a photo with the president.

Obama was in Chicago last Thursday for a $50,000-a-person funder in the Gold Coast, raising more than $1 million for Gov. Pat Quinn’s reelection campaign.
