Obama features "The Wire" cast at fundraiser
The Obama campaign's celebrity fundraisers never cease to amaze: On Aug. 15, in Martha's Vineyard, the cast of the gritty TV series, "The Wire" will be in attendance at one of them, according to a invitation obtained by Party Time.
The event will be held at the home of Judy and Ron Davenport. There are few clues as to which of the numerous actors on "The Wire" will be in attendance.
The cost of the event ranges form $500 to $2,500 a person. While President Obama is on record stating The Wire is his favorite TV show, he is not scheduled to be at the event.
Though not as high-profile as the George Clooney Fundraiser in Switzerland, the event has tremendous appeal to the HBO aficionado.
