WASHINGTON (AP) — Actor George Clooney is offering more help to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign by headlining a European fundraiser this summer for Americans living abroad.

An invitation posted on Obama’s campaign website says Clooney will be the special guest at an Obama fundraiser in Geneva, Switzerland, on Aug. 27.

Tickets start at $1,000 per person, and dinner for two costs a cool $30,000.

Clooney held a gala fundraiser at his Los Angeles home in May that raised nearly $15 million. He typically spends time during the summer at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como.

Obama’s campaign has held fundraising events overseas to raise money from U.S. citizens living abroad.
