Hang With Obama And Clooney For Free in L.A.
President Obama's visits to Los Angeles are pricier to attend than a trip to the Four Seasons bar near Beverly Hills, hookers not even included (yeah, we're talkin' to you, U.S. Secret Service agents).
For his fund-raising dinner party May 10 at George Clooney's home in the hills above Studio City, you will pay $35,800 a head.
Unless, that is, you're a winner:
The Obama campaign launched a contest that will give you a chance to attend the event for free.
Two tickets are up for grabs for the event. The campaign is asking for a donation (the minimum is $3) to enter the contest, but the fine print says you can do it for free.
The camp tweeted this yesterday:
Meeting President Obama at a party hosted by George Clooney--check two things off your life list: OFA.BO/1oHWXm
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) April 23, 2012
An email about the contest sent to supporters even gave Clooney top billing, stating, "Want to meet George Clooney and Barack Obama - at Clooney's house?"
Hail to the chief.
