Shia Kapos of Crain's is reporting that Chicago businessman Michael Polsky and media mogul Fred Eychaner will be hosting President Obama when he comes to town next week to fundraise for Democrat U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
The Polskys will hold a pre-dinner reception at their Gold Coast home. And dinner will be held at Mr. Eychaner's home in Lincoln Park.
According to Durbin and Obama, Polsky and Eychaner are part of "the rich" who fail to pay their fair share. However, both Democrat politicians will likely keep the class warfare rhetoric to a minimum as their guest have donated considerable money to Obama and the Democrat Party. Polsky donated $25,000 toward Mr. Obama's 2009 inauguration, and Eychaner has donated more than $14 million to political action committees supporting Obama and Democrat causes.
In addition, only "the rich" will be able to attend the reception. The price of the reception ranges from $10,000 to $15,000 per person. Dinner guests will be paying $17,500 per person.
