Bill Clinton, Obama: Fund-raising double header Monday.

| No Comments



WASHINGTON--Former President Bill Clinton joins President Barack Obama for a fund-raiser billed as "an Evening with Two Presidents" Monday, June 4 in New York. Jon Bon Jovi will entertain.

As in other fund-raisers with celebrity appeal--for example George Clooney, the money comes from two streams--the high end donors and bundlers--people who use their networks to bring in other contributors--and a low-dollar contest lottery with the prize a free trip to attend the fund-raiser.

The Monday event with Bon Jovi costs between $2,500 per person to $15,000 for a photo reception and "gala dinner for two to $35,800 per person to co-chair which gets the donor the meet and greet, photo reception and dinner for one.

Obama hits Chicago on Friday for high dollar fund-raising. My post on the Chicago events is HERE.
