George Clooney’s Million Dollar Fundraiser For Obama

George Clooney threw a fundraiser for Barack Obama and Obama couldn’t just stop praising George Coolney. The super-fancy fundraiser in Hollywood attracted the a lot of big shots. They paid $40k a plate and racked in $15 million in just one night.

The fundraiser was held at Clooney’s mansion, where 150 of George’s closest and richest friends didn’t even blink when they paid $40k-a-plate.

But when it came time for Obama to address the crowd, he instantly brought up his famous image from the Hope poster … which was taken while he was sitting next to Clooney at an event in 2006.

“This is the first time that George Clooney has ever been photo-shopped out of a picture,” Obama joked … adding, “Never happened before, never happen again.”

Then came even more praise — “[George] seems to occupy a constant state of grace, and uses his extraordinary talents on behalf of something truly important.”

As for the food — the event was catered by Wolfgang Puck … who served up artichoke salad followed by roasted duckling “Peking style” with tiny buns, a duo of lamb and beef cheek with potatoes and Brussels sprouts, and sweet corn tortelloni.

The party was packed with famous people — including Billy Crystal, Robert Downey Jr., Barbra Streisand, Byron Allen, Jack Black, Salma Hayek, Tobey Maguire … and of course Clooney’s GF Stacy Keibler.
