Joe Biden's campaign is gearing up for a major fundraising extravaganza in Los Angeles this June, tapping into the star power of former President Barack Obama and Hollywood icons

George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

Scheduled for mid-June, the Biden campaign event will feature an online contest featuring Clooney and Roberts across various social media platforms, aiming to attract grassroots donors and celebrities alike, as reported by NBC News.

The acclaimed actors, known for their collaborations in numerous Hollywood projects, will also lend their names to campaign emails and text messages, further bolstering fundraising efforts.

Additionally, Biden is expected to host a fundraiser on the East Coast in early summer, likely with former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to insider sources.

This event follows Biden's successful fundraising efforts in late March, where a staggering $26 million was raised at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, with the support of Obama and Clinton.

Described as "historic" by campaign officials, the fundraiser boasted a sold-out crowd of 5,000 attendees, setting a new benchmark for Democratic fundraising in a single event.

Biden's recent fundraising efforts in Northern California and the Seattle area over the weekend further boosted his campaign coffers by an additional $10 million, according to sources familiar with the campaign's finances.

As per the most recent FEC filings, Biden's presidential campaign, combined with the Democratic National Committee, holds nearly double the amount of cash compared to his Republican opponent, Donald Trump.

Despite Trump's recent fundraising surge, particularly following his nomination as the GOP candidate, Biden maintains a significant financial advantage, with his campaign and the DNC collectively amassing $131 million, compared to Trump and the RNC's $67 million.

Trump's fundraising prowess has notably increased since securing the GOP nomination, evidenced by his substantial haul of $50.5 million at a major fundraiser in Florida last month, with his advisors reporting a total of $76 million raised in April.
