New York: If you want to wish U.S President Barack Obama happy birthday on August 3, then be ready to empty your pockets.

Obama will be celebrating his 50th birthday with a party fund-raiser in his home city of Chicago, where the VIP tickets will cost up to 35,800 dollars per couple, reports the New York Daily News.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the pricier seating will include a celeb-studded "birthday concert" and dinner with the president at the historic Aragon Ballroom.

Donors who contribute 50 dollars will gain entry to the concert with limited seating, 1,000 donors dollars get the concert plus premium seating and a hosted bar, and 10,000 dollars tickets include "preferred seating" at the concert and a souvenir photo with Obama.

Details of the epic bash come a day after the president`s re-election campaign announced it raked in an astounding 86 million dollars for the Democratic National Committee and its own coffers in the second quarter of the year.
