The young professionals group Generation Obama launches in Hollywood Saturday with a $25-per-person fund-raiser at Falcon on Sunset. The candidate himself is in Miami, at a similar event, but will address the crowd via a specially taped DVD.
Among the celebrities expected are Taye Diggs, Tyson Beckford, Mehcad Brooks and Hill Harper, along with city councilman Eric Garcetti. Music will come from Shakespeare & Aurelito. And there will be the opportunity to get a silk screened shirt of the Obama image, right.
It will be interesting to see the turnout, because the event is being largely organized by grassroots organizers in Los Angeles as opposed to the campaign itself.
The event runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
