Spike Lee Throws Fundraiser For President Obama

Spike Lee Throws Fundraiser For President Obama

The filmmaker works toward President’s re-election.

Published January 5, 2012

Spike Lee is looking to raise some big bucks for President Obama’s run for re-election.

 

On January 19, the iconic filmmaker will host a $38,000-per-ticket fundraiser for Obama in his Upper East Side brownstone in New York City. Couples will be charged $71,600.

 

On the President getting re-elected, Lee told the Hollywood Reporter last summer that it’s "going to be tough. It’s going to be a fight."

 

While Lee has been as much a critic of Obama as he is a supporter, the auteur is looking to put his Hollywood weight behind the President staying in office.
