Washington (CNN) – President Obama is scheduled to attend two fundraisers in New York on Thursday to benefit his re-election effort, two Democratic sources tell CNN. One is a reception for 15 people at a hotel. Following that he’ll attend a dinner for approximately 50 people hosted by film producer Harvey Weinstein and Vogue Editor Anna Wintour, according to the sources. The dinner will be held at Weinstein’s apartment, one of the sources said. Tickets for both events are $35,800 with proceeds going to the Obama Victory Fund, whose proceeds are shared by the re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Earlier this week the President attended two separate events in Washington. He attended a fundraiser with approximately 140 guests at a private residence with its proceeds also going to the Victory Fund. He also went to a reception that night which was a donor outreach event.
