For Hillary Clinton, a picture is worth a thousand words – and about three thousand bucks.
The Democratic presidential hopeful hit up West Coast elites for some more campaign cash on Feb. 22 with a slew of Los Angeles fundraisers.
At one of the events, a $1,000 per-person fundraiser at a Studio City home, anyone donating $2,700 could have their picture taken with the candidate, according to an invitation obtained by TheWrap.
Individuals willing to pony up $10,000, or couples who contributed $5,400 to Clinton’s primary campaign, had the opportunity to take a photo with Clinton (limited to two adults and children under the age of 16), and become members of the Hillary for America Finance Committee.
Next stop on the Clinton cash train was Hancock Park for a $2,700 a person reception where – for $27,000 – the fortunate ones could take a photo with the former secretary of state, receive a ticket to a host reception, and join the Hillary for America Finance Committee.
The fundraiser, hosted by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and First Lady Amy Elaine Wakeland, was held at the home of Jon Vein, co-founder of MarketShare, an analytics technology provider for major brand marketers, and his wife, movie producer Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, whose credits include 2014’s “The Maze Runner.”
It was Clinton’s seventh visit to Southern California since announcing her second bid for the White House in April 2015.
