Barbara Boxer and Stewart Boxer, Barry Manilow and Garry Kief, Josh.ai founder Alex Capecelatro, Bob and Jane Clark, Chad Griffin and Charlie Joughin, Martha Harsh, Scott Murray and Mihail Lari, Judd and Katherine Malkin, former U.S. ambassador to Argentina Noah Mamet and Alexa Fix, Dr. Bobby Pourziaee and Yale Scott, former prosecutor and congressional candidate Will Rollins and Yale Scott, Dawn Ross and Wendy Schmidt. Tickets at the $1,000 level are sold out, but are priced at $2,500 for the next level. Those who write or raise $100,000 will be listed as hosts, which includes a clutch, photoline and national finance committee membership.

Proceeds for both events go to the Biden Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Biden campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties.

Biden will then return to Los Angeles for the HRC dinner.

On Monday, the first lady will take part in an event that is part of the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research.
