Hillary Clinton to Visit L.A. on May 7 for Fundraisers Hosted by Steven Bochco, Haim Saban

Hillary Clinton will hold her first fundraisers in Los Angeles for her 2016 presidential campaign on May 7, including events at the home of Steven and Dayna Bochco and Haim and Cheryl Saban.

The $2,700-per-person event at the Pacific Palisades home of the Bochcos will be a luncheon reception, with Sen. Barbara Boxer as a special guest, according to sources with knowledge of the campaign’s plans. Hosts also include Sim and Debbie Farar and Howard and Cami Gordon. Sim Farar was a national finance chair of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and Howard Gordon hosted a fundraiser in September for Ready for Hillary, the SuperPAC set up to raise money for Clinton in advance of her announcement that she was running. A number of other hosts from entertainment are expected.

Clinton then will appear at the home of the Sabans for an early evening dinner event. Haim Saban is a longtime friend of the Clintons, and pledged to help her campaign last year. He also has been one of the top donors to Democrats. Tickets to that event are also $2,700 per person, the maximum allowed for the primary campaign.

Clinton is expected to draw heavily on Hollywood money in her campaign.

Updated: Also co hosting the event at the Saban home is Casey Wasserman, who also is expected to play a significant role in raising money for Clinton’s campaign.
