Michelle Obama’s two events in Los Angeles this evening are expected to bring in more than $1.5 million to the campaign, sources say.
In my earlier post I neglected to name some of the other co-hosts of her event at the home of LaTanya and Samuel L. Jackson. They also include Denzel Washington, Magic Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Mike and Irena Medavoy and Nicole Avant.
Obama also is to appear for a fund-raiser at the home of CAA’s Bryan Lourd.
Meanwhile, in a story last week, I mentioned some of the organizers behind Generation Obama, the grassroots org that has been organizing young professionals in Hollywood. Along with Haroon "Boon" Saleem was Bim Ayandele, a political and philanthropic consultant.
