George and Amal Clooney to Host Series of Hillary Clinton Fundraisers

George Clooney and his wife, Amal, will host a series of fundraisers next month for Hillary Clinton, with the campaign launching a contest in which winners can meet the candidate and the couple at the Clooneys’ home.

The full details have not yet been announced, but the events will be held in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and include cocktails and dinner, according to the campaign.

The Los Angeles event will be on April 16, according to a source, with tickets priced at $33,400 per person for the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The event will be co-hosted by Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, and Haim and Cheryl Saban, with more co-hosts to be announced at a later date.

In 2012, Clooney hosted a fundraiser at his Studio City home for President Obama’s re-election campaign, raising about $15 million, a big boost to fundraising coffers after the campaign invited supporters to participate in a raffle contest to attend. The success led to other campaigns adopting a similar fundraising approach, with the campaign of Mitt Romney holding a raffle to attend dinner with the candidate and Donald Trump.

Clinton next will visit Los Angeles on March 24 for a series of fundraisers, including an event at the nightclub Avalon Hollywood and a reception at the home of ICM Partners’ Chris Silbermann and Julia Franz.

The campaign says supporters can text CLOONEY to 47246 to enter.

Clooney told The Guardian last month that he planned to hold fundraisers for Clinton, but he also had words of praise for her rival for the Democratic nomination, Bernie Sanders. As for Donald Trump, Clooney called him a “xenophobic fascist.”

The contest was first reported by People.com.
