President Obama is making a return visit to Hollywood circles, headlining a fund-raiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Beverly Hilton on May 27.
It will be the president’s first appearance at a Los Angeles fund-raiser since taking office.
Sources say co-hosts/co-chairs of the event so far include Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, who co-hosted Obama’s first major entertainment industry event at the same venue in the early days of Obama’s campaign for president in February 2007. Also among the organizers are John Emerson, Andy Spahn, Charles Rivkin, Nicole Avant, Eric Paquette and Noah Mamet.
Tickets for the event will be $2,500-per-person for a reception and $30,400-per-couple for a VIP dinner, which includes a meet and greet and photos with the president.
