Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney will court donors in Sacramento on Tuesday, with a $1,000-a-plate lunch at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.
The event, billed as a "kick-off luncheon," includes a VIP photo reception before lunch at noon.
According to an invitation, the cost is $1,000. Co-hosts are to raise $10,000.
No Republican presidential candidate is likely to beat President Obama in California, but Democrats and Republicans alike are drawn to the state's vast donor pools. The former Massachusetts governor is the GOP's early frontrunner.
