Now that the Republican ticket is set, with Mitt Romney’s selection of Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, there is renewed focus on the vice presidency. On Friday, Aug. 24, Vice President Joe Biden will have the spotlight at an East End for Obama campaign fund-raiser. In addition to a chance to speak with Mr. Biden, guests can also engage Representative Tim Bishop, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg.
The event, at the Bridgehampton home of Ellen Chesler and Matthew Mallow, will be hosted by Nathan Lane, the stage and screen actor, and feature a performance by the singer-songwriter James Taylor.
Tickets start at $500 for “young professionals,” cost $1,000 for “guests,” and go up from there. For an additional $1,000 donation, attendees will receive a Mary Heilmann limited edition print, “Ocean Road.” Tickets and more information are available at mybarackobama.com/eastendforobama.
