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.

A legal maximum donation of $5,300 will include a “sponsor” designation complete with a photo with Clinton and participation in a VIP reception.
