Clooney will work a small crowd of expats at two back-to-back Americans Abroad for Obama events in Geneva on Aug. 27, the Obama campaign announced Friday.

First will come a reception for about 150, at which the Oscar-winner will make a pitch for POTUS, followed by a pricier dinner for guests willing to reach deep into their pockets for Obama’s cause. Tickets for the reception start at $1,000, while entry to the more exclusive party will cost $20,000 a pop.
