Enduring pop star Jimmy Buffett welcomed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to his home in the Hamptons on Tuesday night for a star-studded fundraiser that included music by Buffett, Paul McCartney and Jon Bon Jovi.
The event in North Haven was the latest in an August packed with high-dollar fundraisers for Clinton before what is certain to be a busy final stretch on the campaign trail in her race against Republican nominee Donald Trump.
About 200 guests were treated to a concert that featured performances by the three artists, at times playing together, who knocked out some of their most familiar hits, according to people there. In Buffett’s case, that included “Changes in Latitudes” and “Come Monday.”
Clinton was said to have danced with McCartney during a Buffet song. The concert concluded with a joint performance by all three performers of the Beatles classic “Hey Jude.”
The event appeared to net at least $2 million, with guests paying at least $10,000 to attend, according to a Clinton aide. Proceeds went to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint venture of her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state parties.
Clinton’s high-dollar fundraising itinerary on Tuesday also included an earlier event where guests paid $250,000 to attend, according to an aide. That fundraiser, in Sagaponack, N.Y., was hosted by Susie and Michael Gelman, a Washington-area couple long active with charities including the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
