PHOTOS: President Obama Arrives in Weston for Fundraiser
President Obama arrived in Weston around 8:45 p.m. Monday night.
President Barack Obama arrived in Weston Monday night to cheers and waves from well-wishers and camera flashes from spectators as his motorcade traveled down Boston Post Road toward a home on Winsor Way.
People began to gather at the intersection of Boston Post Road and Wellesley Street, where Winsor Way begins, after 5 p.m. on June 25, waiting for a glimpse of the president's motorcade. The crowd grew from a dozen people to more than 60 as the evening wore on.
Traffic was stopped on Rte. 20 for several minutes around 8:45 p.m. as the motorcade traveled west toward 38 Winsor Way, the site of a fundraiser dinner hosted by Judith and Douglas Krupp.
Sindhu Sreedhar, 16, Shalina Sreedhar, 15, and Madison Stanwich, 17, all of Weston, stood for several hours, holding signs that read "We love Obama" and waving to passing cars.
"We want to see him (Obama), hopefully," Sindhu Sreedhar, said, while Stanwich added, "we really like Obama."
Obama's motorcade passed by without stopping, traveling up Winsor Way to its destination at the Krupp home. Guests had arrived earlier in the night on buses. Tickets to the dinner cost $17,900, or $35,800 per couple.
