Wendy Davis Goes to Hollywood

Abrams, Spielberg, Katzenberg to host fundraising soiree in Santa Monica

May 15, 2014

Embattled gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis (D., Texas) is turning to Hollywood celebs for a fundraising boost in her race against attorney general Greg Abbott.

Hollywood megastars (and loyal Democrats donors) J.J. Abrams, Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Steven Spielberg, the billionaire director of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will host a rooftop soiree and fundraiser for Davis on May 22 in Santa Monica, Calif.

Hosts must pony up more than $25,000 each for the event, while cohosts must raise or contribute $10,000 each. Commoners may attend for a mere $1,000 donation.
