Wish to attend Barack Obama's birthday bash in Chicago? Just shell out $30,000 and you can party with the US President.
Real-estate mogul Neil Bluhm is planning to throw a private party for Obama, who turns 49 on August 4, at his home.
All those attending the celebrations will be required to donate $30,000 to the Democratic National Committee, reports The New York Post.
The guest list has not been made public yet but the party is expected to draw several of the Chicago elite.Meanwhile, Obama has revealed that his daughters may soon be looking for babysitting jobs to supplement their allowances.
Obama said he was also teaching his daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, about savings, interest and money management.
"What I'm doing now with Malia and Sasha is they're getting an allowance," the Telegraph quoted Obama as telling ABC's Good Morning America.
He, however, did not reveal the amount being given to his daughters.
"They're starting to get old enough where they may be able earn some money baby-sitting. They've got their own savings accounts," Obama added.
Any First Daughter baby-sitting service would be likely to be highly sought after. As well as the prestige, parents could expect a full retinue of Secret Service protection for their children.
