President Barack Obama will post up this evening for "The Obama Classic," a dinner at the Time Warner Center with Michael Jordan and David Stern.
The President is expected to touch down at JFK at about 6 p.m.
About 120 people are signed up to attend, and plates sold for $20,000 each.
Before that dinner, Obama supporters will get the chance to shoot a hoops and collect autographs from several current and retired NBA stars including Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Mourning.
Prices to attend a "skills camps" range from $5,000 for a pair of tickets while a manageable $250 nets an additional autograph session with players at Chelsea Piers throughout the afternoon.
Obama's campaign also gave one person an all-expense paid trip to meet the President and the players today, all in exchange for a minimum $3 donation.
After dinner with Jordan, President Obama is expected to fly back to DC before midnight.
