After a record-breaking fundraising month in August, Hillary Clinton is swinging by Los Angeles for yet another glitzy Hollywood tour this month, including a big bash at the home of comedian Seth MacFarlane, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, TheWrap has learned.
The “Family Guy” creator will be hosting the Democratic nominee on September 13 at his Beverly Hills home, with a special performance by Lionel Richie. Tickets for the afternoon event (exact time TBD, according to the invite) will cost $33,400 for “Contributors.” “Hosts” raising $50,000 get to have lunch and take a photo with Clinton. “Co-hosts” who raise $10,000 will attend a lunch and get “preferred seating.”
Clinton will then head off to a big fundraiser at the home of Diane von Furstenberg and IAC Chairman Barry Diller for a $100,000-per-couple dinner. Ex-Disney boss Michael Eisner and wife Jane are co-chairing the event. Tickets are set at $100,000 per couple.
Actress Eva Longoria will also be hosting vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine. “Latinos for Hillary Dinner With Tim Kaine” will take place on September 19 with tickets going for $10,000 to $100,000. The following day, Kaine will be attending a lunch at the Beverly Hills home of UTA managing director Jay Sures. Those wanting to attend will have to shell out $2,700 to $27,000 to be a co-host.
Sures, a close friend of Joe Biden, hosted a fundraiser for Kaine in July before the Virginia senator was named as Clinton’s running mate.
Another event, featuring top Clinton aide Capricia Marshall, the former Chief of Protocol of the U.S., will take place on September 9. The event is at the home of cosmetics mogul Victoria Jackson and is co-hosted by Gloria Steinem. Donations start at $1,000 per person.
And MarketShare founder Jon Vein and his wife, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, will be hosting an “Evening With Robby Mook,” Clinton’s campaign manager, on September 16. Tickets for the events will cost $1,000 for hosts and $500 for “Advocates.”
August was Clinton’s most successful fundraising month thus far — she banked $143 million — thanks in no small part to several big Hollywood fundraisers, including one at the home of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.
