Hollywood Out For Barack Obama

Tonight, Barack Obama will be the guest of honor at a fundraiser hosted in Hollywood by Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

The event which costs $2300 a head, is being attended by some of Hollywood's biggest names. And many of those that can't attend have sent a cheque.

The guest list tonight includes Eddie Murphy, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Aniston and Denzel Washington.

Barack Obama will be expected to raise about $1 million in one night. The function was initially set for an attendance of 400. It is expected that the event might draw in 600, which will be a capacity crowd.
