Hollywood superstar George Clooney is returning to Geneva this summer to raise money from wealthy American expats for Barack Obama’s presidential re-election bid.

Clooney is set to visit the Swiss city for fundraising events on August 27th, according to Charles Adams, an American lawyer and a representative of the Democratic Party.

The movie actor plans to speak at a reception for 150 supporters paying $1,000 each, Adams told the Tribune de Genève newspaper.

The event will be followed by a dinner for 50 people coughing up $20,000 each ($30,000 for couples) for the privilege of breaking bread with Clooney.

The events will be closed to the general public.
