Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will host this latest fundraiser for Michelle Obama later this month. Tickets range from $2,500-$40,000 for the event at the Smiths’ Calabasas home. Salma Hayek is also co-hosting with Hancock producer and Smith’s longtime business partner James Lassiter and his wife Mai. Roc Nation president Jay Brown and his wife Kawanna, head of Magic Johnson Enterprises, are also listed as co-hosts along with Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter and his wife Rebecca. The Lassiters held a fundraiser for the president last October at their Hancock Park home, with the Smiths, the Browns and the Carters in attendance.
A major draw in the re-election campaign, the First Lady was last in LA for separate fundraisers at the homes of Warner Bros head Barry Meyer’s and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani on August 12. This latest event was announced by President Obama’s campaign finance committee and comes three days after the final Presidential debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton.
