The fundraiser takes place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and in addition to the president, Gov. Rendell and Mayor Nutter will be attending to show their support at the $1,000-a-head cocktail reception.
There will also be another VIP reception for those who raise at least $10,000 and a dinner for which “an individual an individual must write (not raise) a minimum of $10,000 or raise $50,000” to attend,” according to an e-mail from Comcast executive David L. Cohen.
Cohen’s e-mail promises all of the dinner guests a picture with Obama and Specter. The fundraising goal for the event is $2.5 million. So far the “Pennsylvania Senate Victory 2010” has $600,000 in hand and more than $700,000 in firm commitments, says Cohen.
The fundraiser begins at 3 p.m.
