Al Franken To Hold Fundraiser Featuring Fellow Saturday Night Live Veterans
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) is set to reunite with some fellow Saturday Night Live veterans at a Democratic fundraiser this weekend in Los Angeles.
The event, taking place at the renowned House of Blues, will be hosted by Dan Aykroyd and his wife Donna, who are expected to be joined by former SNL regulars Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Proceeds from the first reception -- which will cost between $2,400 and $4,800 a person -- will go to "Franken MVPs," a new PAC that splits donations between Franken's personal 2014 Senate reelection campaign and other leadership PACs, the Tribune reports.
A less expensive event is also scheduled to take place later in the night, featuring the same notable guests from the entertainment and political world.
Sen. Franken also pulled some strings with his SNL connections last month, when he borrowed "Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers for a Minneapolis fundraiser.
