In time for summer break, Obama’s campaign extends its fundraising efforts to Switzerland and France.
George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Obama reelection campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash.
The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events in Geneva, Switzerland on August 27. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the last general election.
Charles Adams, who is co-president of the campaign’s European outreach effort, told the newspaper Tribune de Geneve that Clooney will address a crowd of about 150 at an evening reception, which will be followed by a more intimate—and expensive—dinner at which the star will be the guest of honor. Tickets for the latter event will go for $20,000 for singles and $30,000 for couples.
