Hillary Clinton to visit Hollywood for fundraiser

Los Angeles, June 2 (IANS) US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be here on June 19 for a fundraising swing.

It will include a late-afternoon event at the home of HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo and husband Sonny Ward, and an evening event at the home of actor Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer.

Clinton also will attend a lunchtime event at the home of Westfield Corp. co-CEO Peter Lowy and his wife Janine, reports variety.com.

The events, billed as ‘Conversations with Hillary Clinton’, will be a day after US President Barack Obama comes here for a fundraiser at the home of actor Tyler Perry.

That event, with tickets starting at $2,500 per person, will raise money for the DNC (Democratic National Committee).

Clinton’s visit here will be her second since announcing her presidential bid in April. In May, she raised money at three events, including one at the home of TV producer Steven Bochco and another at the home of media proprietor Haim Saban, a trip that raised an estimated $3 million.

The three June 19 events are priced at $2,700 per person.

Those who raise at least $27,000 will be designated as “co-hosts”, with access to a host reception and membership in the Hillraisers program, and those who raise at least $50,000 will be designated as “hosts”, also with access to the reception and membership in Hillraisers, according to the invites.

The event at the home of Lombardo and Ward is aimed, in part, at LGBT donors. The couple hosted a DNC fund-raiser at their home last year with US First Lady Michelle Obama.

Clinton will officially announce her campaign on June 13, with a speech in New York at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, followed by visits to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.
