President Obama In Atlanta On Friday
" ATLANTA (WAOK)-Atlanta Democrats are planning a star studded evening of fundraising when President Barack Obama visits on Friday. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed told WAOK and V-103 earlier in the month that the POTUS will spend much of the day here attending various events including a fundraiser at Tyler Perry studios followed by an evening at the movie mogul’s home.

The Tyler Perry studio meet and greet which is also sponsored by the  African American Leadership Council is scheduled to get underway at 5 pm Friday at Tyler Perry Studios in Southwest Atlanta.  Special Musical Guest will be Cee Lo Green.

Following the studio gathering, Atlanta’s heavy contributors will shell out as much as $35,800.00 at 8 pm Friday for dinner and a photo with President Obama at the home of Tyler Perry.
