First Lady Michelle Obama Visit To SF This Weekend Postponed As Shutdown Continues
A fundraiser brunch with First Lady Michelle Obama and other democratic leaders scheduled for this weekend has been postponed in the wake of the partial federal shutdown.
The Women's Brunch with U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, on Sunday at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco has been postponed to an undetermined date, according to Adam Russell from Rep. Sam Farr's office.
Farr, D-Monterey, had planned to host a bus to take 40 women from his district to the event, Russell said.
The theme of the event at the hotel, located at 950 Mason St., was women empowerment.
With Congress unable to pass a budget by the end of September, dozens of federal agencies and programs deemed "non-essential" have been closed for a week and a half.
Obama's stop in San Francisco was part of a fundraising effort for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
