Invitations to White House State Dinners are hard to come by, but there’s an easy way in: donate heavily to the president.
The White House released a list of expected attendees for Tuesday night’s dinner hosting French President François Hollande, including lawmakers, administration officials, journalists, and celebrities—as well as a healthy crop of Democratic donors.
Top Obama bundlers Mark Gallogly, Joan and Irwin Jacobs and Cappy McGarr were just some of the monied names on the list. Celebrities including Bradley Cooper, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mindy Kaling, Stephen Colbert, and J.J. Abrams all are expected to attend, as are Republican lawmakers Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan. CNN boss Jeff Zucker and New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson are also on the list.
