WASHINGTON--Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.) Rep. Debbie Halverson (D-Ill.) and Democratic House hopeful Dan Seals, running for the open seat in the 10th congressional district, are getting a fund-raising boost Friday with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chief Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) in Chicago headlining separate events for them.

The DCCC is hoping for a payback on March 9 at a mega dollar fund-raiser in Chicago where the draw are the DCCC vice chairs, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fl.) and Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Ia.)

The host for the DCCC funder is attorney Phil "Flip" Corboy and the lunch is at the Corby & Demetrio Loop offices. The prices: to be in the "Speakers Cabinet" is $30,400 per couple; Host, $10,000 per couple; Sponsor, $2,500 per couple; single ticket, $500.

The Foster breakfast is hosted by Jack Levin, Lew and Susan Manilow, Michael Bauer, Antonio Romanucci and Sheila Smith at the Kirkland & Ellis offices in the Loop. Sliding scale, from $1,000 to $250.

The Friday afternoon Seals event is billed as a "meeting" to "hear about the 10th Congressional race" over at the Standard Club, also in the Loop. Sliding scale, from $2,400 to $500. Van Hollen has a second Seals event at 6 p.m. in Winnetka hosted by
Mary Stowell & Jim Streicker.

Van Hollen has a lunch funder for Halverson at Powers Rogers and Smith, PC in the Loop
