President Barack Obama is returning to the Bay Area in a couple of weeks to raise money for his Democratic colleagues in the U.S. Senate, according to party officials.

Obama will be attending fundraising events on June 6 in Palo Alto and Portola Valley on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The president’s trip will include a 5 p.m. reception at the Palo Alto home of tech entrepreneurs Marci and Mike McCue, according to an invitation for the event.

He will then travel to Portola Valley for a 6:30 p.m. dinner and discussion at the home of venture capitalist Vinod Khosla and his wife Neeru.

Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo., are also expected to attend both events.

Tickets for the dinner cost $32,400 per person, and tickets for the reception start at $2,500, according to the invitation.

Obama was last in the Bay Area in April when he attended Democratic fundraisers in San Francisco and along the Peninsula.
