Charles Adams, co-president of the campaign’s European outreach effort, told the newspaper Tribune de Geneve that Clooney will address a crowd of about 150 at an evening reception, which will be followed by a more intimate — and expensive — dinner at which the star will be the guest of honor. Tickets for the latter event will go for $20,000 for singles and $30,000 for couples.
And they’ll always have Paris, too,
the Continental branch of the Obama fundraising effort will kick off next week in Paris with an Independence Day reception at the Rosenbloom Collection on the chic Rue du Chevaleret. Organizers Forrest Alogna, Pamela Boulet, Zachary James Miller, Valerie Picard, Joe Smallhoover and Curtis Young will host an early-evening event whose ticket prices range from $250 to $1,500.
On July 12, Alogna, Miller and Picard will host a slightly more exclusive 6:15 p.m. reception at a Paris site yet to be announced. That event will feature former Secretary of the Navy and Rand Corp. heavy Richard Danzig as guest of honor. Tickets are set to range from $750 to $5,000.

While, of course, what better example of how “in touch” Obama is with average Americans than to have $20,000/person fundraisers in Swiss cities and 4th of July in Paris?
