President Donald Trump will make a rare visit to California next week, including a stop in the Coachella Valley for a fundraising event.

Trump is scheduled to attend a fundraiser Wednesday at Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison‘s Rancho Mirage estate, according to an invitation obtained by The Desert Sun. The invitation bills the gathering as a golf outing and reception.

Also listed as hosts of the event are Republican National Committee chairs Ronna McDaniel and Tommy Hicks Jr., national finance chairman Todd Ricketts and Trump reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale.

Tickets range from $100,000 for a photo opportunity and golf outing for two, up to $250,000 for a roundtable discussion, photo opportunity and golf outing for two, according to The Desert Sun.

Riverside County Republican Party Chairman Jonathan Ingram told the paper having Trump visit the area has “immense” meaning for the local GOP.

“It’s showing that he understands that California actually matters in respect to being a Republican and a conservative,” Ingram said.

No other details have been released about Trump’s travel plans. He is expected to be in the Los Angeles area for a fundraising dinner Tuesday night.
