James Lassiter to Host First Lady, Jill Biden at Fund raiser

Producer James Lassiter and his wife Mai will host a $10,000-per-person dinner at their Los Angeles home featuring First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden.

The Oct. 26 event — part of Obama's campaign swing through California — is to raise money for the Democratic National Committee as well as a fund set up to pay for any midterm recounts. A host reception is priced at $30,400 per couple.

Lassiter was an early supporter of Obama in the 2008 cycle and is the producing partner of Will Smith.
