    First Lady Michelle Obama plans to travel to San Diego on Friday for a breakfast fundraiser at the La Jolla home of Joan and Irwin Jacobs, local philanthropists.

    An invitation for the Oct. 26 breakfast event lists a host committee that includes Ellen and David Dolgen, Elaine and Murray Galinson, Marcy and Jeffrey Krinsk and two heavyweight fundraisers for Obama -- Christine Forester and Lynn Schenk.

    The minimum contribution to attend the breakfast fundraiser is $1,000.

    The Jacobs family is one of the top donors to the Obama family, contributing over $2 million to the campaign.

    This will be the First Lady’s third visit to San Diego since her husband was first elected president.
    In 2010, Michelle Obama visited a City Heights community garden to talk about her Let’s Move initiative. A couple months later, also in 2010, she thanked some 3,500 Marines for their service during a trip to Camp Pendleton.

    An anti-Obama protest is scheduled to take place near the fundraiser Friday morning at the intersection of Dunaway Drive and Torrey Pines Road.

    The protest is organized by a group of activists who believe President Obama lied about the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya, and that the president's background has not been adequately vetted.

    On Thursday, Michelle Obama visted the 25,000-square-foot Los Angeles home of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for a fundraiser organized by a group of celebrity women.
