Washington: George Clooney, who hosted a high-profile fundraiser for President Obama at his home in May, is heading to Switzerland this summer for another campaign event.

According to an invitation on the campaign’s website, Clooney will attend a fundraiser for the president’s re-election in Geneva on August 27, the Politico reported.

Charles Adams, co-president of Americans Abroad for Obama, told the Tribune de Geneve newspaper that Clooney will speak at a reception for about 150 supporters.

He’ll then attend a smaller, high-dollar dinner costing 20,000 dollars for individuals and 30,000 dollars per couple.
