(AP) President Barack Obama is getting one last chance to celebrate his re-election before settling in for his second term.

A day after his public swearing-in, Obama is celebrating at a staff ball Tuesday night intended to thank campaign, White House and inaugural staffers for their efforts. Pop diva Lady Gaga, who campaigned for Obama, will perform.

The staff ball is a private affair. On Monday, tens of thousands attending the two official inaugural balls watched the president and first lady share a dance as Jennifer Hudson crooned Let's Stay Together.

Staffers paid $10 per ticket to attend the staff ball. Proceeds will support a memorial fund for Alex Okrent, a campaign worker who collapsed and died at Obama's campaign headquarters in July.
