President Obama Going to Shonda Rhimes’s House For Fundraiser
Have thousands of dollars in expendable income? Then you too can wine and dine with Grey's Anatomycreator Shonda Rhimes and President Barack Obama next month!
The Hollywood Reporter announces that Shonda will host the Commander in Chief at her Los Angeles house on July 23 in a fundraiser for the Democratic National Convention. She may not have Meredith and Derek's McDreamhouse, but we're sure the 44-year-old's casa is muy buena.
And Shonda won't be the only Hollywood talent present. Her Scandaldarling Kerry Washington will be on the host committee — there's a host committee?— and the event will feature a musical act. Ahem, Sara Ramirez, submit your application now.
Tickets start at $1,000, but those who cough up $32,400 will get access to the President's photo line — and will enjoy an exclusive dinner with him (and about 30 others).
This isn't the first time Shonda has had dealings with the leader of the free world. President Obama appointed her to the Board of the Trustees for the Kennedy Center For the Performing Arts last year.
