George Clooney will host fundraising dinner for Obama presidential campaign

Hollywood star George Clooney will host a $6 million fundraising dinner for Barack Obama at his Los Angeles home.

The event, on May 10, will feature in the “Dinner with Barack” campaign which the president’s political braintrust dreamed up to drum up small donations and fire up grassroots supporters.

Obama fans are invited to enter the contest and donate as little as $3 on a webpage titled “Obama, Clooney and You” featuring pictures of the Oscar winning star and the president.

A campaign official said the A-list dinner, likely to be the most star-studded night of the Obama campaign so far, was expected to draw 150 supporters paying $40,000 each for a ticket.
