Clinton to hold benefit for Newsom's campaign

Mayor Gavin Newsom might have the most name recognition between him and his Republican opponent Abel Maldonado, and yes he has more money, but he also knows those two things combined won’t secure his victory for lieutenant governor in November. However maybe name recognition, money and an event with Former President Bill Clinton will hit the trifecta.

Clinton is stumping for both Newsom and Jerry Brown, the democratic nominee for California governor, at an Oct. 17 VIP dinner and reception benefitting the Democratic party, with donations ranging from $500 to $50,000. 

“We are in the final stretch of this important election, and the California Democratic Party continues to grow stronger every day,” Newsom said in an email.  “With your support, we can continue this momentum through to victory on November 2nd.”

CONTRIBUTION LEVELS:
CO-CHAIR:
A $50,000 donation will provide entry to the VIP dinner and complimentary photograph & reception.
CO-HOST: A $10,000 donation will provide entry to the VIP dinner and complimentary photograph & reception.
VIP GUEST: A $2,500 donation will provide a complimentary photograph and entry to the reception.
GUEST: A $500 donation will buy an individual ticket to the reception.
