Elizabeth Warren Brings in Big Cash at Hollywood Fundraiser

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren raked in big cash and names at a fundraiser hosted by actor Ben Affleck.

Warren is running against Republican Sen. Scott Brown. The seat was previously held by Sen. Ted Kennedy before his death in 2009.

The event at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production studio in Santa Monica on Monday was dubbed “A Massachusetts Evening.” Actors Matt Damon and The Office’s John Krasinski were co-hosts of the event, however both Damon and Krasinski were filming on location and couldn’t attend the fundraiser. It drew about 150 Hollywood donors, along with more than 200 individual donations to the Warren senatorial effort, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Celebrities and industry professionals included Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Braff, Dana Delany, Tobey Maguire, Ed Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz, Alan Horn and Writers Guild president Chris Keyser. Other contributors included Steven Spielberg, Rob Reiner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Sally Field, Michael King, Harvey Weinstein and Alan Ladd Jr.

The Warren campaign has yet to release the fundraising totals from the event. However, Warren’s fundraisers had set a goal of $250,000 for the evening. Donations were ranging between $1,000 and $1,500 per person.
