It's not what you know, it's who you know, right? First Lady Michelle Obama is in L.A. for a few fundraisers and to kick it off, she arrived at Gwen Stefani's house in Beverly Hills yesterday for a fun day Sunday complete with face painting and balloon sculptures for kids.
In fact, Gwen and her band, No Doubt, hosted the event which charged at least $2,500 for a family of four. The Hollywood Reporter indicates about 400 people were on the RSVP list.
Next up, Michelle was scheduled to attend a reception at the Warner Brothers' CEO's home. The price to attend that shindig? It ranged from $2,500 to $25,000. As for today, she'll attend a luncheon fundraiser and then will head over to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
At Gwen's house, Michelle told party revelers, "Barack can't do it alone. He's not Spider-Man. He's not a superhero. He's a human, so we need your help. I am not just talking to the adults here today. I am talking to the young people here as well. All of our young people -- you might not be old enough to vote....but you can play an important role in this election, too.
The rocker sounded pretty psyched about the fete. She Tweeted, "The first lady is here! gx"
