A dinner at George Clooney's California home is expected to make $12m (€9.16m) for Barack Obama's re-election campaign, making it the largest US presidential fundraiser ever seen.
The May 10 attendance list is a secret, but actors, studio bosses and film moguls will be among the 150 guests.
Tickets sold for $40,000 (€30,557) each, raising $6m (€4.58m). Democrats were asked to make donations for the chance of winning a ticket, raising a further $6m. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
