The former FLOTUS is coming all the way to the Great White North this spring and, so far, she’s just got one Canadian visit planned. On Tuesday, March 31, she’ll be speaking in BC and tickets to Michelle Obama’s Victoria visit are going on sale Wednesday, February 26.
“She is an inspiring leader and role model to so many. And because of her strong values and true convictions, she continues to drive important change in society,” said Catherine Holt, CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce in a release who is a sponsor of the event.
“A Conversation With Michelle Obama” is happening at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
The tickets start at around $150 and go up to about $470. VIP tickets also are available for over $1,830, but these come with the added bonus of getting to actually meet-and-greet with Obama herself.
There are 7,400 seats in total at the venue, including accessibility seating; however, tickets could sell out quickly so get your hustle on if you want a seat.
As First Lady of the US, Obama has launched and led a ton of popular major initiatives including her “Let’s Move!” campaign to solve the problems of childhood obesity.
