The night before Barack Obama heads to Montecito to raise money at the home of Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama will be in Los Angeles for a fund-raiser at the Bel-Air home of Barry and Lea Porter. Barry Porter is managing general partner of Clarity Partners, a private equity firm specializing in media and communications.

Tickets for the Sept. 7 reception are $500, with $2,300 for a listing as a chair. In addition to the Porters, those on the host committee include Nicole Avant, Giselle Fernandez, Victoria Hopper, Irena Medavoy, Sherry Lansing, Jamie and Michael Lynton, Cookie Parker, Joyce Rey and Charlie Rivkin.

In June, Fernandez hosted a fund-raiser featuring Michelle Obama at her home in Hancock Park.

Also, from Pop & Politics, there’s a recap of the scene at Falcon last weekend, where 008 The Movement hosted the kickoff of Generation Obama. Among those also there (who I missed): supermodel Tyson Beckford.
