President Barack Obama will head to the Bay Area next week for fundraising events and unparalleled glamour! Before heading to crime-ridden Atherton for a $32,400-a-plate reception, he'll get the chance to dine at the Getty mansion.
SF Appeal reports, "Obama will be visiting the house of asset manager and Democratic fundraiser Tom Steyer for a reception on April 3, followed by a dinner that night at the home of philanthropists Ann and Gordon Getty."
Describing the home as "harmonious," Harper's BAZAAR says of the Getty manse: "walls covered in Chinese gauze boast Canaletto vistas of Venice as well as paintings by Degas, Matisse, and Renoir, which happily accompany verre eglomisé cabinetry, George III gilt-wood armchairs, 18th-century Chinese porcelain figurines, and glittering girandoles from the collection of Hubert de Givenchy."
What's up the Getty clan as of late, anyway? We don't hear much from them these days. Anyway, be prepared for motorcades and high security next week. Obama will be here for four fundraising events in total.
