TAMPA - President Barack Obama attended a private fundraiser at a South Tampa home Thursday night.
The Commander in Chief stopped at the home of Donn Miggs and Lisa Debartolo. Lisa, who runs the family's non-profit foundation, is the daughter of billionaire shopping mall mogul and former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie Debartolo, Jr. Donn Miggs is the front man for the indie rock band Miggs.
Sources close to the family tell us they had been planning for the occasion for a month and dozens of people pitched in to pull it off. Workers spent the day setting up tents, chairs and bringing in refreshments.
Fewer than 50 people, including Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Food Network chef Tyler Florence, were expected at the fundraiser.
Ticket's weren't cheap. Guests paid $20,000 for the chance to meet the President.
