Tyler Perry, President Obama campaign dinner ATL style.


(ThyBlackMan.com) On Friday, Film maker Tyler Perry joined President Barack Obama at three pricey fundraising events in Atlanta to raise money for the president’s 2012 re-election campaign. The sold-out events, sponsored by the African-American Leadership Council and Tyler Perry, kicked off with a private reception followed by a gala celebration and later on, an evening at the movie mogul’s home. This was the President’s first visit to metro Atlanta in 18 months.

President Obama began his fundraising at a private residence where 75 people paid $10,000 each to attend. Tickets for the gala celebration, which attracted 1,000 donors to Tyler Perry’s sprawling southwest Atlanta studio, were a hefty $500, though a smaller number sold at $250, according to the campaign. The gala featured a performance by R&B singer and The Voice star Cee-Lo Green.
