Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were guests at Hillary Clinton’s very first fundraiser of 2016 this afternoon in New York City, a source who attended the event confirms to ABC News. Singer, Tony Bennett, was also at the fundraiser, per the source.
This afternoon fundraiser – hosted by
hedge fund titan, Richard Perry, and his wife and fashion designer, Lisa Perry – was the first of three fundraisers Clinton is attending in today in New York City.
According to an aide to Clinton, approximately 120 people attended this first fundraiser, which was held at the Perry’s Manhattan ease-side apartment at 1 Sutton Place, overlooking the East River.
Each of the fundraisers today costs $2,700 to attend and is hosted by what the campaign calls “Hillstarters” – a supporter who has donated $27,000 or more to her campaign.
It’s unclear how long Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been Clinton supporters. Last November, the twins were seated at the same table as Hillary Clinton during a gala in New York City. Perhaps that’s where they bonded.
