Organizers tell the AP at least $625,000 was raised from American donors to the Obama campaign at the event tonight in Geneva where George Clooney is the draw. Guests are paying $15,000 per person to dine with Clooney, $5,000 for a photo with him, and $1,000 to attend a reception before the dinner. About 30 people are attending the dinner, with about 100 at the reception. The event is co-hosted by Geneva-based American lawyer Charles C. Adams Jr and Matthew Barzun, Obama’s campaign finance chairman. A more private dinner at Adams’ home cost $20,000 for an individual ticket and $30,000 per couple.
Clooney raised a record-breaking $15 million in May at a dinner at his LA home for President Obama’s reelection.
Thus endeth the political entries… for now.
