Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to begin a two-day visit to Los Angeles Monday to speak at a $2,500 per person fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee featuring a performance by Carole King.
What organizers are billing as the “When Women Succeed America Succeeds Cocktail Reception” will be held at the home of Jim Gianopulos, the chairman/CEO of Fox Filmed Entertainment at 20th Century Fox.
According to an invitation posted on the website PoliticalPartyTime.org, other hosts of the event include DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, former Warner Bros. Entertainment Chairman Barry Meyer, film producer Peter Chernin, philanthropist Hope Warschaw and director/producer James L. Brooks.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, is also expected to attend.
Biden will join Mayor Eric Garcetti at a roundtable discussion on the minimum wage Tuesday.
The Los Angeles events are part of a six-city, four-state, four-day Western trip for Biden, set to begin Monday in Las Vegas with an event on raising the minimum wage.
From Los Angeles, he will head to Bakersfield for an event with Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, the Democratic candidate for secretary of state and congressional candidate Amanda Renteria, who is challenging Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford.
Biden’s visit to Los Angeles will come three days before President Barack Obama is scheduled to be in the city, attending a fundraiser at the home of actress and longtime supporter Gwyneth Paltrow.
