Hillary Clinton Returns for L.A. Fundraising

Hillary Clinton mingled with Hollywood figures at an afternoon reception at the Santa Monica home of ICM Partners’ Chris Silbermann and his wife Julia Franz, one of two fundraisers on Thursday as her campaign taps Los Angeles donors.

Thursday evening, Clinton will appear at the Hollywood nightclub Avalon for another fundraiser, and will be making a guest spot on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

About 150 guests attended the Silbermann event, where tickets were $2,700 per person.

“I have deep admiration for Secretary Clinton,” Silbermann said in a statement. “I am proud to support her as our next President alongside my family and friends as we approach one of the most significant elections of our lifetime.”

The Avalon nightclub event was aimed at a younger crowd, with tickets starting at $250 per person. Ben Harper, Estelle and Mary J. Blige were scheduled to perform, and Russell Simmons was the emcee.

Clinton’s rival Bernie Sanders was in Los Angeles earlier in the week, filling the Wiltern Theatre on Wednesday night with a largely young crowd. Rosario Dawson introduced him, criticizing the “corporate media” for trying to write off his prospects of capturing the nomination.

Sanders, too, appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” earlier in the week, and drew plenty of attention as he ventured down Hollywood Boulevard.

He said his Wiltern appearance, hastily planned after a Wyoming visit was canceled due to bad weather, is just the start of his campaigning in the lead up to the California primary on June 7.

On Thursday, Clinton also held a campaign event, a homeland security roundtable at USC, where she appeared with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
