 WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will host a fundraiser for House Democrats at the home of former NBA star Alonzo Mourning.
That's according to an invitation to the event obtained by The Associated Press.
The event in Miami on March 20 will benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other lawmakers will also attend.
The event will feature a cocktail reception and photo opportunity, followed by a dinner.
The fundraiser is among the first Obama will hold ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Obama will also raise money for Senate Democrats and the Democratic National Committee.
A former Miami Heat player, Mourning is helping to promote new health care exchanges under Obama's health care law. He and Obama golfed together when Obama was in Florida in November.
