Hollywood A-listers are rolling out the red carpet for Hillary Clinton ahead of the Democratic frontrunner’s whirlwind fundraising tour in Los Angeles this week.
TheWrap spoke to Clinton’s Hollywood fundraising team about what to expect, who has already RSVP’d and how much will it cost to mingle with the entertainment industry’s biggest names.
Christina Aguilera and her producer fiancé, Matthew Rutler, will host Clinton’s first L.A. fundraiser this week their Beverly Hills home on Wednesday. Organizers tell TheWrap that Aguilera will be performing along with A Great Big World.
The musical duo from New York, made up of singer-songwriters Ian Axel and Chad King, picked up their first Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Say Something” along with Aguilera earlier this year.
Hosts for the event were asked to raise $10,000 for four tickets. Organizers say the fundraiser is really a straight-up concert. It’s completely sold out, with 400 people expected to show up.
On Thursday, Clinton will headline a fundraiser in Los Angeles hosted by Cynthia Telles and Joe Waz from noon to 2 p.m. Contributions will range from $1,000 for “Friends,” $2,700 for “Champions,” $27,000 for “Co-Hosts” and a cool $50,000 for actual hosts.
The fundraiser is expected to draw 75 guests, including designer Kimberly Ovitz, art consultant Meredith Darrow, Mosaic manager Michael Lasker, RYOT News’ Bryn Mooser, “SNL” writer Michael O’Brien, and former White House speechwriter Jon Lovett. The gathering — featuring Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook — will be held at Kives’ home, with tickets ranging from $250 to $1,000.
