Phil TagamiHosts Bill Clinton
According to the Oakland Tribune, Bill Clinton is the featured guest of a cocktail reception thrown by Phil Tagami , Managing Partner of California Commercial Group, and to be held at The Rounda this evening. The details from the Trib are below...
Former President Bill Clinton will headline a cocktail reception tomorrow night at the Rotunda Building in downtown Oakland’s Frank Ogawa Plaza to raise funds for the presidential campaign of his wife, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY. It’s $500 a head, or $2,300 to get into the VIP reception starting half an hour before the 7 p.m. main event.
The event’s co-chairs include Clear Channel Outdoor executive and noted Democratic politico Michael Colbruno; Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums; attorney Kenneth Katzoff; state Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland; Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, D-Oakland; and developer Phil Tagami.
And among the hosts for the evening are Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente; Oakland City Councilwoman Jean Quan; Unity Council CEO Gilda Gonzales; Oakland Unified School District board vice president Kerry Hamill; and others. See the whole skinny here.
Surely they’re hoping the money they raise will help turn around what’s been a not-so-hot week for the candidate, what with a debate performance on Tuesday night that seemed less than stellar.
