Tickets ranging from 250 to 2,500 U.S. dollars for the reception and 35,200 U.S. dollars per couple for the dinner were all sold out.The event was expected to raise nearly 3.5 million dollars to split between the DNC and the senator.

The Los Angeles events are the latest in an accelerating fundraising schedule for Obama, who has been traveling to help bolster vulnerable Democrats recently.

This was the first time that Obama came to California to campaign on behalf of Senator Boxer,a three-term incumbent who has said she expects to face her toughest campaign since first being elected to the Senate in 1992. She could face a tough fight in November.

Boxer has reported that she had raised 2.4 million U.S. dollars in the first three months of 2010. Her closest rival in the fundraising race, former Hewlett-Packard chief Carly Fiorina, has bagged 1.7 million U.S. dollars in the same period.

The White House said the president would not have any official business in the city. He will spend the night at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills before his scheduled return to Washington on Tuesday morning.
