President Barack Obama is expected to attend a Democratic fundraiser at the Hollywood home of "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman this month, Variety reported Friday.

"I'll be there for you, 'cause you're there for me, too," from the theme song of the hit TV show, couldn't be more in tune with the Hollywood liberal elite and the Democratic party.

Guests will shell out $32,400 per ticket that will go into the Democratic National Committee's coffers, the Hollywood newspaper reported.

Kauffman and her husband, composer Michael Skloff, were originally going to hold the fundraiser in September, but it was canceled because Obama was dealing with the crisis in Syria.

The day before the gala event, Obama will attend two additional fundraisers in Los Angeles with Democratic Rep. Steve Israel of New York; Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo.; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., according to Variety.

The first will be a reception at the home of Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie, with tickets starting at $2,500 apiece. A photo line and reception costs $5,000 per person, and a VIP "clutch," photo, and general reception costs $15,000 per person.

The next will be a dinner at the home of Haim and Cheryl Saban, with tickets starting at $16,200 per person, or $32,400 per couple.

The money will go to the House Senate Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
