Tickets are $40,000, but the campaign says a small donation lands a chance to win two tickets - airfare and hotel included.
Beyonce says in an email to Mr. Obama's supporters that she's a huge fan and will do whatever it takes to help him win a close race.
This isn't the first time the Obamas have teamed up with the A-list couple to promote each other's causes. Michelle Obama helped Beyonce with efforts to promote global humanitarianism, and the president appeared in a pre-recorded video earlier this month at a Jay-Z event in Philadelphia.
And Mr. Obama has had other celebrity backing, too. George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker held fundraisers for the president earlier this year.
