Obama to Wine & Dine the Stars


The Chicagoan will host a fundraiser gala among Hollywood’s elite — including actors Samuel L. Jackson, Dennis Quaid, model Cindy Crawford — Tuesday afternoon, with Seal expected to perform.

The Obama event at the Los Angeles Music Center is a $2,300-per-person reception with a VIP dinner beforehand for donors who pay $28,500 per couple.

AP: “The glitzy gathering will be an early test of Obama’s ability to enlist Clinton’s financial backers, many of whom are still nursing some pain from the grueling primary contest.”
