Clooney to Host Star-Studded Fundraiser for Obama

May 11, 2012

U.S. President Barack Obama has departed Washington on a trip to California where he will attend a fundraiser Thursday evening at the home of Hollywood star George Clooney.

150 donors have been invited to dine with the president, and the dinner is expected to raise $15 million for Obama's re-election campaign. $6 million of that amount comes from attendees who paid $40,000 per ticket for the event. The rest comes from an online fundraiser that raffled a chance to attend the event to small-dollar donors.

While in the western United States, Obama will also attend fundraisers in Washington and Nevada.
