Chelsea Clinton to Fundraise for Hillary in Los Angeles
The former first daughter will headline three Southland events, including one at Frank Gehry's office in Venice, on Jan. 25 and 26.
With Bill Clinton stumping for his wife in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign will become a completely family affair when daughter Chelsea comes to Southern California this month for three fundraisers in support of her mother’s efforts, according to invitations obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.
Chelsea’s events, which have a hip young edge, will take advantage of arts-oriented venues. Styled as “conversations” with the former first daughter, one gathering will occur on Monday, Jan. 25 at the Venice office of Pritzker Prize-winning super architect Frank Gehry. The next day, there will be a similar conversation at the historic Venice Lantern House compound of author and computer code entrepreneur S. Scott Meyers.
Chelsea Clinton, who is pregnant with her second child, will also host a fundraiser at the Newport Beach home of real estate investor Michael Chegini and his wife Sholeh, a human resources executive.
Chelsea will be back in New York after the Los Angeles trip to host a $2,700-per-person fundraiser at Tribeca’s trendy SoulCycle fitness club.
As THR previously reported, Hillary Clinton will be back in Los Angeles this week for a Thursday luncheon fundraiser at the San Gabriel Valley home of Congresswoman Judy Chu. Afterward, Clinton will head over to the Henson lot — former home of the Muppets — for a “family celebration” with general admission tickets starting at $500. (Those contributing $5,400 in primary dollars or raising $10,000 will be allowed to take a family photo with Clinton.)
Following the Henson event, Clinton will join billionaire investor and campaign supporter Warren Buffett at the Mack/Goldsmith home. Tickets for that event are $2,700. Those who raise $50,000 will be given a spot in the photo line.
