President Barack Obama will welcome the nation's governors to the White House this Sunday evening, administration officials annouced Thursday.

The 2009 Governor's Dinner will be held in conjunction with a meeting of the National Governors Association, which is holding its winter meeting in D.C.

Among those expected to attend the White House bash will be Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The visit will mark Governor Palin's first visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. since Obama took office on January 20.

President Obama and the First Lady will officially host the event with entertainment by Earth Wind and Fire and the US Marine Corps Band.

It is the debut for White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, a Chicago executive and friend of both the President and First Lady.

"The White House is the place where our bond as Americans is strengthened," said Rogers in a statement. "We look forward to welcoming the nation's governors to celebrate our democratic ideals, our diversity, our shared values and the best of the American spirit."
