President Barack Obama is coming to the Motor City for a $1 million pizza party being thrown for him compliments of Denise Ilitch, daughter of Little Caesars founders Mike and Marian Ilitch. Ilitch is opening her home April 18 for the fundraiser where movers and shakers are being asked to pony up thousands to add to his re-election coffer while getting a chance to rub shoulders with the most powerful man on the planet. Im honored to have been asked, by the Obama campaign to host, Ilitch said of the event she and husband, Jim Scalici, will hold at their Metro Detroit home. She made the comments on Michigan Matters when asked about media reports.
When asked what she planned to serve, she said: Pizza! But, well be serving it on sterling silver plates!
The price of admission isnt for those on a budget. $40,000 buys access to the cocktail reception, formal photo with Obama and dinner. $10,000 buys dinner and a photo.

Its enough to make you Illitch.
so is that warmed over cardboard they call pizza.
Especially this year. Detroit looks unbeatable.
(My W. Sox are look...um.. bleh)
I’ve never had a Little Caesar’s pizza and never intend to have one.
One million dollars worth of Little Squeezers? I think I’m gonna be sick.
Oh my...Cloverleaf. You just brought back years of childhood memories with that one word.
Little Caesars on the list.. Detroit Tigers, hope your season sucks! Time for another email it seems!

Interesting info ... thanks for the heads up.
Hot and Ready. You don't have to call and order, just stop in and pick it up. Super convenient innovation. Way faster than the drive-thru at McD's or Taco Bell even. $14.95 for two large pizza's, crazy bread and a 2 Liter. Cheapest way to eat out for a family of 6 and usually have leftovers. It's not going to win any best pizza awards, but it's not terrible and can't beat the price.
Ilitch is a self made billionaire and true story of success. Sad to see them supporting Obama, but hard to see through if this is typical corporate pragmatism, 2nd generation white guilt, or something with idealistic intent. The cynical side of me says that nobody becomes a billionaire without government help, so maybe this move reveals some quid pro quo.
They’re not that great.
HA ! Post of the day so far.....
They’d better count the silver plates after King Barry and his entourage departs.
$2,300 09/15/2008 - Obama for America - Democrat
$1,000 03/18/2008 - Hillary Clinton for President - Democrat
Several More Democrat donations
not to mention here’s hoping that the Nashville Predators kick the crap out of the Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs this week.
I’ve been wanting to try birch beer. It’s supposed to be healthy and stuff. :-) I don’t think we can get it here in Oklahoma, though.
Ha, ha, he only thinks he’s Big Caesar.
Now we know what the “Red” in the Red Wings really stands for.
No more supporting Illitch enterprises.
Papa John’s (from what I heard anyway) started either in Louisville, or across the river in Indiana. LC and Domino’s, you got right on the money.
OBVIOUSLY, not in DOWNTOWN DEETROIT....or they’d be serving KFC, Colt 45 in quart bottles, and watermelon.
