Hillary Heads to Hollywood Monday

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

Supporters of Hillary Clinton willing to shell out $250 a plate can dine at the Democratic Presidential candidate-hopeful's only Los Angeles stop before the Iowa caucuses, a last minute campaign and fundraising event to be held this Monday night. The swank gathering will take place at Social, which is legendary restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow's toney eatery located in the landmark Hollywood Athletic Club.

KCBS-2 is reporting that there will be a VIP reception as well as another extra-VIP segment of the evening for price tages of $1000 and $2300 respectively.

Last week it was reported that a threatened strike by CBS news writers represented by the WGA brought about the cancellation of the Dems' Los Angeles debate scheduled for December 10th, so it's possible that Clinton opted simply to keep her travel agenda and to come to Southern California as initially planned.

Monday night's fundraiser at Social is reportedly closed to the press, leaving more room for Hollywood big spenders backing the popular Senator from New York to rub elbows with each other in the venue's dramatic "Moroccan Room."
