George Clooney to Host Fundraiser for Obama

U.S. President Barack Obama has departed Washington on a trip to California where he will attend a fundraiser Thursday evening at the home of Hollywood star George Clooney.

150 donors have been invited to dine with the president, and the dinner is expected to raise $15 million for Obama's re-election campaign. $6 million of that amount comes from attendees who paid $40,000 per ticket for the event. The rest comes from an online fundraiser that raffled a chance to attend the event to small-dollar donors. News by VOA News.
