Clooney to star in Obama fundraiser
The group’s co-president Charles Adams is organizing the event, Democrats Abroad said on its Web site.
Swiss media said the evening event was limited to U.S. citizens and would begin with a champagne reception for 150 people donating $1,000 each, followed by a dinner for 50 costing $20,000 a head, or $30,000 per couple.
The daily Le Matin said Clooney wanted to ride his Harley-Davidson from Lake Como in northern Italy where he has a home, but that organizers preferred him to avoid what they consider a risky journey and travel to Geneva in a chauffeur-driven car instead.
In May, some 150 donors met at the actor’s home in support of the U.S. president, and he held a fundraiser in Geneva in 2008, when Obama won his current term in office.
