Actress Gwyneth Paltrow will be joining Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, fashion designer Tom Ford and Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe in hosting a fundraiser for President Obama on Sept. 19 in London, reports the London Evening Standard.

The event will be held at Mark’s Club, a private dining club in Mayfair. Tickets for the dinner are going for $15,000 a plate.

This isn’t Wintour’s first time co-hosting a fundraising dinner for the president. Just this year, the Obama-bundler co-hosted an event with actress Sarah Jessica Parker and another at the home of Harvey Weinstein.

Paltrow has also been a vocal supporter for Obama and attended a fundraiser for him in New York City with husband Chris Martin of Coldplay in Aug. 2011. In Oct. 2011, she and Martin hosted their own fundraiser for the president in their London home.

The Obama campaign recently held a fundraiser in Geneva, Switzerland – one of many overseas fundraising events. Actor George Clooney spoke at the event.
