Leonardo to host Hillary’s fundraiser


Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio will host Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for a fundraiser later this month when she makes her next visit here, sources said.

The event on August 23 is priced at $33,400 per person and is billed as a “Conversation with Hillary”, reports variety.com.

The first $2,700 will go to the Clinton campaign, and the remainder will go to the Democratic National Committee and state and local parties.

Sources said plans were in the works for the event to take place at DiCaprio’s home, but they were still being finalised.

This will be Clinton’s first visit to Los Angeles since the Democratic National Convention. Invites to a series of events began to go out in recent days.

DiCaprio attended a Clinton fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s home in New York in June.
