George Clooney in Geneva: Vote Obama!
George Clooney is taking his brand of star-powered politics across the Atlantic to stump for US President Barack Obama in Switzerland this summer.
George will work a small crowd of expats at two back-to-back Americans Abroad for Obama events in Geneva on 27th August, the President's re-election campaign announced.
First will come a reception for about 150, at which the Oscar-winner will make a pitch for POTUS (President of the United States), followed by a pricier dinner for guests willing to reach deep into their pockets for Obama's cause.
Tickets for the reception start at US$1,000, while entry to the more exclusive party will cost US$20,000 a pop.
George's efforts on the president's behalf paid off handsomely—to the tune of US$15 million—at a fundraising dinner the actor hosted at his home in Studio City, California, on 10th May.
After all, who can resist saying yes to Dr Doug Ross?
