Bill Clinton to speak at Emanuel fundraiser tonight
Former President Bill Clinton will be the guest speaker at a fundraiser tonight for Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s 2015 re-election campaign.
Emanuel served as a senior adviser to Clinton at the White House.
Clinton openly supported Emanuel during his first mayoral bid by appearing at a closed-door event that raised $25,000 for Emanuel’s campaign in 2011.
Meanwhile, last week Emanuel participated in a Chicago fundraiser to support a potential presidential bid by Hilary Clinton.
Tickets for this evening’s fundraising event at the Studio Paris in River North are $500 for general admission.
A legal maximum donation of $5,300 will include a “sponsor” designation complete with a photo with Clinton and participation in a VIP reception.
