First Lady Michelle Obama is returning to Los Angeles October 25 for a fundraiser held at actor Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith‘s house in Calabasas, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The fundraiser will be co-hosted by actress Salma Hayek, Roc Nation co-founder Jay Brown and wife Kawanna, film producer James Lassiter and wife Maiand Lady Gaga manager Troy Carter and wife Rebecca.

Tickets for the lunch are going for a $2,500-per-person contribution to the Obama Victory Fund. A $10,000-per-couple donation for a photo with the first lady. Guests willing to pay $40,000 will get lunch for two, a photo with Mrs. Obama and an exclusive meet-and-greet before the meal.

This isn’t the first time the first lady fundraised in Los Angeles. She attended a fundraiser earlier this summer held by singer and fashionista Gwen Stefani in Beverly Hills.

The Smiths and some of the other co-hosts have previously co-hosted fundraisers for the Obama campaign, specifically in fall 2011.

President Obama recently wrapped a star-studded fundraising weekend in Los Angeles that apparently netted the Obama campaign close to $10 million.
