First Lady Michelle Obama, after returning to Chicago with the president and their children earlier this month for a wedding, is back in the Windy City Tuesday for two fundraisers and a bill signing.

Obama first co-hosted a fundraiser lunch with actress Jane Lynch of "Glee" at Fulton's on the River, Fox Chicago reports. Tickets to the lunch, which is raising funds for President Obama's re-election campaign, ranged in price from $1,000-per-plate to $5,000, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The event, NBC Chicago reports, is targeted toward the LGBT community.

According to the Associated Press, Obama will also be on hand as Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signs the state's Military Family Licensing Act into law at an Illinois National Guard armory located in Chicago.

Finally, Obama is also participating in a fundraiser with the group Gen44 at Venue One, 1044 W. Randolph, where tickets range from $44 to $5,000 -- the cost of getting a photo op with the First Lady, the Sun-Times reports. Gen44 is a group targeted toward fundraising within the under-40 crowd.
