Democratic presidential front-runner, Hillary Clinton, is adding more Hollywood star power to her campaign. The Wrap says Clinton has more Hollywood endorsements “than all the other candidates combined.” Now Tinseltown heavyweight and a long time Democrat, George Clooney, along with his high-powered lawyer wife Amal Clooney, are on board to host fundraisers and a raffle for the former Secretary of State.

The Clinton campaign sent out a tweet today about the raffle, which offers winners the opportunity to meet the candidate and the Clooneys at one of their plush pads.

“No contribution is necessary and the raffle runs through March. Winners will receive a night with the couple, a free flight, and accommodations,” according to The Wrap.

The Clooneys will be hosting two upcoming fundraisers for Clinton, one in Los Angeles on April 16 and another in San Francisco. Ticket prices for the L.A. bash $33,400 per person and that includes cocktails and dinner. Among the other co-hosts for the event Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, and Haim and Cheryl Saban.

George Clooney apparently has the golden touch for these big money fundraisers. In 2012, Clooney hosted a fundraiser for President Obama’s re-election campaign and raised a staggering $15 million!
