The president is scheduled to speak at 9:55 a.m. Friday morning, May 9, at the big box retailer on Showers Drive, where Walmart's energy saving practices will get the spotlight as Obama talks about the importance of energy efficiency.
"From lighting and water conservation to refrigeration systems and building materials, we view our facilities as laboratories of sustainability," Walmart says on its website.
Obama also planned to attend two fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee on Thursday, one at Mountain View startup incubator Y Combinator and another a dinner for 20 at Los Altos home of Anne Wojcicki, 23andMe CEO who is married, but separated, from Google-founder Sergey Brin. The dinner is reportedly $32,400 a plate and tickets to the Y Combinator event reportedly range from $1,000 to $32,400 each.
The president's agenda calls for him to fly out of Moffett Friday morning shortly after his talk at Walmart, which is closed to the public but open to the press.
