Obama Adds Second Big-Dollar Hollywood Fundraiser to L.A. Visit
President Barack Obama has added a second big Democratic fundraiser to his May visit to Los Angeles, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The commander-in-chief, who has already scheduled a big-dollar event for May 7 at the Bel Air estate owned by Disney chairman Alan Horn and his wife, Cindy, will hold an intimate "round table" discussion at the Beverly Hilton the next morning.
Seats at that invitation-only gathering will run $32,400 per person, with proceeds going to the Democratic National Committee, according to an invite obtained by THR.
The take from the Horn event will go to the DCCC and the DSCC. That gathering also will feature House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, DCCC chairman Steve Israel and DSCC chairman Michael Bennet. Tickets for that gathering range from $10,000 to $64,800 each.
