(CNN) – Democratic sources tell CNN the president's Los Angeles fundraisers include two small dinners and a rally. Each dinner seats 60 people. The ask: $35,800 per person. That includes $30,800 for the DNC and $5000 to the campaign.
The first 60-person dinner will be on the Sony Pictures lot. Sony CEO and Chairman Michael Lynton helped organize the event. The second, at the Brentwood restaurant, the Tavern, will be chaired by tennis channel CEO Ken Soloman and Capital Group's John Emerson – Southern California finance Co-chairs – as well as democratic consultant and fundraiser Andy Spahn and movie mogul Jeffery Katzenberg.
The President will also attend a rally on the Sony lot with tickets priced $100-$2500.
Democrats say they initially planned just one dinner at Tavern, but demand was high enough to warrant a second. Donors have been told the president will go table to table sitting with the $35,800 diners.
For comparison, during the 1990s Hollywood threw $100,000-plate fundraising dinners for then-President Bill Clinton. They were slightly smaller affairs – 10 to 20 people – and at the home of a sought after Los Angeles heavyweight.
