First Lady Michelle Obama To Visit Southern California For Fundraising Swing

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — First lady Michelle Obama will spend two days in the Southland next week, speaking at a pair of Democratic National Committee fundraisers and appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The first lady’s fundraising swing starts Tuesday when she appears on Leno and Ellen to tout the upcoming two-year anniversary next month of her signature “Let’s Move” initiative, her effort to combat childhood obesity.

Obama also is scheduled to speak at a DNC fundraiser Tuesday night in Los Angeles and a fundraising lunch Wednesday.

On Wednesday morning, she will attend an event with Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts and Robert Ross, CEO of The California Endowment, to highlight efforts to provide healthier food options in traditionally under-served areas.
