Atlanta welcomed President Barack Obama
as he arrived for a campaign fundraiser hosted by Tyler Perry
last Friday evening (March 16, 2012).
Perry held an event at his Tyler Perry Studios, located on Greenbriar Parkway in Atlanta, where ticket prices ranged from $250 to $10,000.
Hundreds of Obama supporters lined the streets of my old southwest Atlanta stomping grounds for hours as they waited for a glimpse of the president and/or any other notable celebs.
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, U.S. Representatives John Lewis, David Scott, Hank Johnson and Sanford Bishop, along with Rev. Joseph Lowery were among the 1,000 people who attended.
