Buffett to Headline Fundraiser for President Obama

September 26th, 2012


Jimmy Buffett is lending his voice once again to the Barack Obama campaign. He’ll headline a fundraiser at a Florida home on October 12th, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Next up at the Lake Mary home of celeb-lawyer and Democratic fundraiser John Morgan: Jimmy Buffett, live and in concert, to raise money for the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama.

Morgan is inviting people to a private, 5 p.m. fundraising party at his Lake Mary mansion on Oct. 12 featuring “A Musical Evening with Jimmy Buffett.”

Price of tickets starts at $500 just for the concert; $1,000 for VIP seating; and $5,000 for a meet-and-greet opportunity with the Florida Keys balladeer, Cheeseburger in Paradise rocker and long-time Democratic supporter.

“Remember, it’s five o’clock somewhere. Come get your margaritas, cheeseburgers and paradise at Morganritaville!!” Morgan states in an invitation cover letter.

Proceeds will be split up between the Obama For America committee, the Democratic National Committee, and state Democratic committees in Florida, Ohio and several other “swing states.”

In 2008, Buffett played to 20,000 people at a campaign rally in Tampa for Obama. In 2009, Buffett was spotted at the White House while in town for his annual northern Virginia show.

Obama also delved into political fundraising in 2010, playing at a private event for Florida gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink.
