$12 Million! George Clooney’s Sold-Out Obama Dinner Called Biggest Presidential Fundraiser Ever

It definitely pays to have A-list friends.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, George Clooney's dinner for President Barack Obama has sold out, with 150 rich people paying $40,000 apiece (!) to chow with the prez at Clooney's Studio City home on May 10.

There's also an online sweepstakes going on and the winner will receive two seats at the head table with Obama and Clooney.

Online donations are pouring in and could hit $6 million, THR reports, on top of the $6 million the dinner is raising, meaning the event is poised to raise about $12 million for Obama's re-election campaign. That makes it the biggest presidential fundraiser in U.S. history. That is some fancy food. Unless Clooney just calls Domino's for takeout.
