LOS ANGELES (CNS) - President Joe Biden will return to Los Angeles Tuesday to begin a California fundraising swing.

According to the White House, Biden will be in California from Tuesday to Thursday, visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco and Los Altos Hills to take part in "several political engagements."

No details were released.

The Los Angeles Times reported earlier that Biden plans to attend a Tuesday fundraiser hosted by longtime Democratic Party boosters Haim and Cheryl Saban and Casey Wasserman, a sports management executive and chairman of the LA 2028 Olympic Games planning group. The event will be held at the Sabans' home, according to The Times.

According to Deadline, tickets for the Tuesday event range from $3,300 to $250,000. Tickets priced at $25,000 include a photo opp with Biden.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Biden Victory Fund, which supports his reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Biden was in Los Angeles the weekend of Feb. 3-4, taking part in a campaign meeting in Bel Air. Various reports indicated that Biden visited the home of film producer/director George Lucas and met with music industry executives to discuss ways of boosting his reelection bid. The Grammy Awards were held in Los Angeles Feb. 4.

Also during that trip, first lady Jill Biden gave a five-minute speech at the Fifteen Percent Pledge Gala at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, emphasizing the importance of supporting Black entrepreneurship and the steps the president has taken in office to advance equity and dismantle racial barriers to accessing capital.

The Fifteen Percent Pledge is a nonprofit organization that asks businesses to commit 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned brands.

Previously, the Bidens were last in the Southland in early December, spending two days attending fundraising events. The president also attended a shiva at the residence of Lyn and Norman Lear, honoring the legendary television producer who died Dec. 5.
