President Barack Obama coming back to Chicago next month

Updated: August 18, 2012 6:32AM

President Barack Obama hits Chicago Aug. 12 for another round of high- and low-dollar fund-raising — pegged to his birthday — with an event set at his South Side home. Obama turns 51 on Aug. 4.

First lady Michelle Obama sent out an email on Monday about a raffle low-dollar donors can enter — as little as a $3 donation — for a spot at an event at the Obamas’ Kenwood home. The campaign has successfully used raffles for dinners with Obama and for fund-raisers at the homes of George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker.
