On April 15, actor George Clooney and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are asking $353,400 for two tickets to sit at a table with them at a San Francisco fundraiser, according to Politico.  

The campaign fundraiser is going to be held at the home of Bay Area entrepreneur and investor Shervin Pishevar. The tickets can be paid for directly or through fundraising.

The Clinton campaign is also running a contest to allow a supporter to attend the event for free.

The event will be the first of two fundraising events where the Democratic frontrunner is set to appear with George and his wife, Amal Clooney. The second will be on the next day, April 16 where the former Secretary of State will appear at Clooney’s Las Vegas mansion.

At the Clooney residence, Clinton is asking a comparatively cheap $33,400 per head to sit with the movie star and the politician. The Clinton campaign is also running a contest to allow a supporter to attend the event for free.

Both events raise money for the “Hillary Victory Fund,” whose status as a “joint fundraising committee” allows rich donors to pay more than the $2,700 maximum during the primary and general election season.  

The “Hillary Victory Fund” has raised money twice before. In February, Elton John and Katy Perry headlined an event at Radio City Music Hall and raised millions. In December, the musician Sting hosted an event where the raised 8 million dollars.
