Hillary Clinton is returning to Los Angeles on June 19 for a fundraising swing that includes a late-afternoon event at the home of HBO’s Michael Lombardo and husband Sonny Ward, and an evening event at the home of actor Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer.

Clinton also will attend a lunchtime event at the home of Westfield Corp. co-CEO Peter Lowy and his wife Janine.

The events, billed as conversations with Hillary Clinton, will be a day after President Obama treks to L.A. for a fundraiser at the home of Tyler Perry. That event, with tickets starting at $2,500 per person, will raise money for the Democratic National Committee.

Clinton’s visit to L.A. will be her second since announcing her presidential bid in April. In May, she raised money at three different events, including one at the home of Steven Bochco and another at the home of Haim Saban, a trip that raised an estimated $3 million.

The three June 19 events are priced at $2,700-per-person.

Those who raise at least $27,000 will be designated as “co-hosts,” with access to a host reception and membership in the Hillraisers program; and those who raise at least $50,000 will be designated as “hosts,” also with access to the reception and membership in Hillraisers, according to the invites.

The event at the home of Lombardo and Ward is aimed in part at LGBT donors. The couple hosted a DNC fundraiser at their home last year with guest First Lady Michelle Obama.

Clinton will officially announce her campaign on June 13, with a speech in New York at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, followed by treks to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

    She hasn’t gotten enough money already? Seems the hacked DNC files would suggest otherwise. Wonder if anyone at the fundraiser will get a sweet committee position like Raj Fernando did?

    Facts are facts: Hillary Clinton praised Margaret Sanger, a woman who wanted to KILL BLACKS poor and disabled people. Are blacks this STUPID that they would vote for Hillary Clinton? No wonder Hillary is pimping herself out for Black lives matter. What a JOKE! OMG people wake up.Seriously! What is wrong with anyone who would vote for Hillary Clinton? You would have to hate blacks, disabled and poor people to support Hillary Clinton because this is what she values. People who do the same. Get it? Duh. You have been hoodwinded by Clintons. They SECRETLY hate blacks. SECRETLY hate disabled. And the Clinton’s detest the poor. They are sociopaths preying on your ignorance. Vote for Berine now! Feel the Bern! Berning away the evil of the Clinton’s non stop lying and scandal machine.

    Too bad Hillary “sold out” to Monsanto and other big corporate interests ahead of her supporting “the people”. I wonder how it is that so many Hollywood people still support her? Perhaps they don’t realize this or they don’t think it makes a difference? If they were just to read up about Monsanto and why millions around the world hate this company…
