They say whoever has the gold makes the rules. And if you happen to have $353,000 laying around, you’ll have the chance to whisper some potential rules into Hillary Clinton’s ear, not before you rub elbows with movie star George Clooney.
According to a report in Politico, Clooney and his wife attorney Amal Clooney will be sitting at the head table of an April 15th fundraiser in San Francisco along with Clinton. To sit alongside the candidate and her celebrity pals, donors just need to raise a cool $353,000.
“The Bay Area fundraiser, hosted at the home of venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar, is one of two events starring the Clooneys,” the report reads. “On April 16, Clinton and the Clooneys will reunite at the Clooney Los Angeles mansion, where tickets cost $33,400 per person to dine at the table with one of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples.”
The fundraiser is for The Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee for Hillary for America, the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic committees of 32 states and Puerto Rico. The fact that it is a coordinating committee and not the campaign itself allows it to raise far more than the $2,700 per person limit the Clinton campaign itself is forced to observe.
