Leonardo DiCaprio to Host Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton
The Oscar-winner is heading up an event for the Democratic presidential nominee later this month.
Last week, Hollywood actors and musicians played a huge part in the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and it appears they are just getting started this election year. On Aug. 23, Leonardo DiCaprio will host a fundraising event for Hillary Clinton at his Los Angeles home, according to The Wrap.
Tickets for the event are a whopping $33,400 per person. Only $2,700 of that will go directly to Clinton’s campaign, the rest will go to supporting the DNC, as well as state and local candidates. DiCaprio, who frequently uses his celebrity to advocate for environmentalism, has been a longtime supporter of Clinton since she first entered the presidential race.
Although the A-lister often publicizes his political and environmental concerns, he has a knack for maintaining a low profile in his everyday life. Take a look at the gallery above of DiCaprio’s low-key shopping trip with friends while in New York this week.
