Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to speak Monday night at a Democratic National Committee Fundraiser event at Brentwood’s Tavern restaurant in Los Angeles.

The DNC event’s co-chairs include Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and Disney Studio chairman Alan Horn, according to the invitation posted on PoliticalPartyTime.org.
