Obama Postpones Next Week's Fundraiser In L.A.
Save that $32,000 contribution: President Obama has postponed next week's pricey Los Angeles fundraiser as he deals with the situation in Syria.
The Hollywood Reporter shared an email sent from a Democratic National Committee fundraiser who announced the postponement, as well as apologies and the offer of a refund.
The reception was scheduled to be held September 9 at the Hancock Park home of Friends co-creater Marta Kauffman and her husband, composer Michael Skloff.
It would have cost $32,400-per-person to participate in a roundtable discussion with the President and an extra $5,000 for those who wanted a photo with the president. (And you thought those characters on Hollywood Boulevard charged a lot for photos!)
The event was expected to bring in more than $1.2 million for the DNC, according to THR. Obama was also scheduled to speak at the national AFL-CIO convention.
