Sarah Jessica Parker Hosting Obama Fundraiser

Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker is holding a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at her home in New York.

“For me, this election is even more important than 2008,” Parker said in an email sent by the Obama campaign to supporters. “As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success.”

Similar to the fundraiser held by George Clooney earlier this month, the Obama campaign is urging supporters to make a donation in order to win an invite. The Clooney fundraiser ultimately raised $15 million.

Parker currently serves on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
