Stars Chip in for Obama’s Inaugural

That, and other news, in today’s Roundup and Recap.

Barack Obama’s inaugural committee has set up a tool to make it easier to search for donors and bundlers “real time.” The money will pay for the costs of inaugural balls and other events, and many of those who contribute are getting VIP access to various shindigs, although the tickets to the actual swearing in ceremony cannot be sold.

Among those who have chipped in for packages up to $50,000 so far: Skip Brittenham, Marcy Carsey, Jamie Lee Curtis, David Fisher, Jamie Foxx, Lisa Henson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Keane, Katherine Kendrick, James Lassiter, George Soros, Sharon Stone, Halle Berry and Robert Zemeckis. Among those who are bundling contributions (i.e. rounding up their friends and contacts) are Nicole Avant, Elizabeth Bagley, Marcy and Leo Carsey, Mark Gorenberg, Bren Simon, Andy Spahn, Terry and Bonnie Turner and Wendy Wanderman.
