New York (CNN) - President Barack Obama ends a busy day Monday in New York City with two fundraisers for his re-election campaign.
Five days after announcing he personally supports same-sex marriage, the president will speak to some 200 people at a fundraiser co-hosted by entertainer Ricky Martin, who announced two years ago that he is gay, and the Futuro Fund, an initiative by some Latino leaders to support Obama's re-election bid, according to a campaign official.

Some 200 people are expected to attend the late afternoon event, which is being held at the Rubin Museum of Art, with tickets starting at $5,000, according to the official.
Later the president will be the main attraction at a second fundraiser at a private residence. Some 60 people are expected to attend the dinner, which is being hosted by Tony James of the Blackstone Group, an alternative asset management and financial services company, with tickets for the event costing $35,800, according to the campaign official.
The price of the ticket is the legal limit an individual is allowed to contribute to a campaign per cycle and to a party committee per year.
The two fundraisers will bring in, at the least, a combined $3.14 million. All the money raised at two events will go to the Obama Victory Fund, which is a joint account of the Obama re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and several state Democratic parties.
Much of the money raised at the second fundraiser is expected to come from those who work on Wall Street, according to Democratic sources. While Obama raised large sums from the financial services industry in his 2008 election, he's had a much tougher time raising Wall Street money this time around.
The fundraisers cap a packed schedule for Obama in New York City. Early in the afternoon he gives the commencement address at Barnard College, the prestigious women's college. Both the president and the Freedom to Marry founder and president, Evan Wolfson, will receive the Medal Of Distinction at the Barnard College commencement. Freedom to Marry is a coalition pushing for support of legal same-sex marriages.
Following his speech, the president tapes an interview with ABC'S "The View," the popular daytime all-female hosted talk show. The program is schedule to air on television Tuesday. Obama won the female vote by 13 points in the 2008 presidential election, according to exit polls. His campaign is making a push to keep women voters in his camp this November, as national Democrats continue to push their narrative that paints the GOP as waging a "war on women."
