2nd Obama inauguration scaled down, but still needs big donations

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

President Obama inauguration planners are looking for donors with deep pockets.

They want $1 million donations to help pay for the party. Patrons will get special access to the president for that kind of money.

Obama raised $53 million in private money for his first inauguration. Planners said this year's event has been scaled down, with less than half the crowd expected.

Last time there were ten balls on inauguration-night. This time around - there are two.

Good Day Chicago's Dawn Hasbrouck and FOX 32 Political Editor Mike Flannery will be heading to the president's second inauguration.

Look for their live reports beginning Sunday, Jan. 20 on FOX 32 News at 9 p.m. They will be live throughout the day on Jan. 21 from the U.S. Capitol.
