Voting Obama in November? In Los Angeles this evening? Got $28,500 to throw around?
Well then you can mosey on over to Beverly Hills for a fundraiser for Barack as only Hollywood can do it.
The evening starts with dinner at a Beverly Hills mansion followed by a reception at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, where Barbara Streisand, an ardent Democratic supporter, will perform. Folk singer Ben Harper is also slated to play.
Obama's aides are mum on the exact number of attendees expected, as well as which stars are on the pricey guest list.
But we do know that about 250 people are expected to dinner and that 900 are expected to see the Funny Girl sing.
Together the events are estimated to raise 9 million dollars, more than any candidate has raised in a single day.
In Florida on Monday McCain hosted his own buffet dinner at Miami's InterContinental hotel, culminating in 26.2 million dollars for McCain in Florida to date. In August, McCain experienced his best funraising thus far with 47 million dollars. But, since he accepted public funding, his general election campaign spending is limited to 84 million dollars.
Obama, on the other hand, raised a record-breaking 66 million dollars in August. He opted out of public funds, making this one of the most expensive election races yet!
