Obama Offers Sweepstakes Dinner in L.A.
The President of the United States is offering the chance of a lifetime for his many devotees. And chance it is, as the chance is a sweepstakes entry to be a dinner guest in Los Angeles at his next fundraiser. This fundraiser is hosted by George Clooney, whose name appears before President Obama on the invitation sent to supporters.
The regular ticket price for this event is $38,500.00 for dinner with Obama at Clooney's home in Los Angeles. The sweepstakes on May 10, 2012, doesn't even require a donation to the campaign, if you read the official rules of the sweepstakes. The winners will receive two coach-class airline tickets to L.A. for themselves and one guest, a hotel room and a $200 dinner with Obama, Clooney and their Hollywood guests.
The other notable Hollywood guests include Barbra Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg. The proceeds from the fundraiser go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fund-raising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee, and several state Democratic parties.
Clooney commented on Entertainment Tonight a couple weeks ago that he's “proud to do whatever I can to support the President.”
