The event at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel on Tuesday is scheduled to begin at 1:25 p.m.
Air Force One landed at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport at about 11:20, and shook hands with dignitaries as he stepped onto the tarmac. He also took a few moments to shake hands with well-wishers gathered at the airport before departing in his motorcade.
President Obama's motorcade stopped through Midtown Atlanta at the landmark Varsity Drive-In, where he answered the legendary call, "What'll ya have," by ordering five chili dogs, four hot dogs, a cheeseburger and five frosted orange drinks for his traveling staff, Mayor Kasim Reed and Reed's mother Sylvia Reed.
The president greeted a group of school children and some military personnel at the eatery before departing for his first fund-raiser of his Atlanta swing.
President Obama arrived at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel in Downtown Atlanta for the first of two campaign appearances in Atlanta shortly after 1 p.m.
The president is on a two-day, four-state campaign trip taking him into Romney's backyard. He was in New Hampshire on Monday before heading to Boston and then on to Atlanta and Miami on Tuesday.
The three fundraisers in Boston alone were expected to bring in more than $3 million.
