Obama Raises Money Around His Chicago Birthday

President Obama will spend his 51st birthday, August 4, at his home in Chicago, according to USA Today. And he's using it to raise money.

Michelle Obama sent an e-mail to campaign supporters on Monday announcing a contest for donors, the winner of which will "join the fun" for Obama's birthday at their Kenwood neighborhood home.


Last year, Obama became the seventh president to turn 50 in the White House and celebrated with a barbecue in the Rose Garden and East Room. In attendance were Jay-Z, Tom Hanks, Stevie Wonder and other celebrities.
