Whoops. We meant Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker. You can see why the honest mistake.
“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker is hosting President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and a few lucky raffle winners at a fundraiser in New York next month.
Parker will be hosting the event at her home on Friday, June 14, according to a campaign email signed by Parker.
“As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success,” Parker wrote in the email. “This November’s election will determine whether we get to keep moving forward, or if we’re forced to go back to policies that ask people like my middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden — while people like me, who don’t need tax breaks, get extra help.”
For a contribution of any amount — although the ask is $3 — supporters are entered for a chance to be there. According to the fine print, winners also get tickets to a performance by Mariah Carey, although it’s unclear if Carey will be entertaining at Parker’s house.
The Obama campaign broke fundraising records with a similar raffle for dinner with the president at George Clooney’s house earlier this month, raising more than $6 million from the raffle. With entrance fees for guests, the total haul was more than $15 million.

Sarah will even serve her favorite meal, hay and oats.
Excitement! Thrills! Hobnobbing with the crème de la crème of American society! All of these can be yours if you toss Barack Obama some cash.
That, at least, is the message of President Obama’s latest campaign to raise money: he’s emailed his supporters asking for donations, which enter them into a lottery to attend a fundraiser at George Clooney’s home. Here’s what President Obama tweeted:
Yes, it is certainly on our life lists to meet President Obama and George Clooney! Who wouldn’t want to meet these intellectual giants, these moral heavyweights? Our lives revolve around such momentous encounters.
