President Obama’s San Francisco fundraising itinerary today

Thursday, February 16, 2012

imageThe President is to touch down at SFO at 12:50 noon. He’s at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel at 2 p.m. to meet with 20 high-roller donors. Press is excluded. Tonight there’s a $38,600-per-plate fundraiser at the home of author Robert Mailer Anderson and Nicola Miner. Chef Michael Tusk of Quince is catering. Limited press. Afterward (in time for visuals on local late night newscasts) the President heads over to Nob Hill Masonic Center for a lesser fundraiser that’ll include a speech, followed by a concert featuring Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell.

Noted: One deep-pocketed local Dem who plans to keep her checkbook closed this time: Susie Tompkins Buell, who tells the Chronicle she’s disenchanted with Obama.
