The $2,500 per person fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee 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’s visit will come three days before President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a fundraising swing through Los Angeles, attending a fundraiser at the home of actress and longtime supporter Gwyneth Paltrow.
Tickets for the Thursday event with the president are expected to cost up to $32,400.
The trip will be Obama’s 20th to Los Angeles or Orange counties since taking office in 2009. All but three of his trips have included political fundraisers.
