Posted: Updated:

Having an extensive network can come in handy, especially when it comes to hosting lavish benefits and private dinners for political figures.

President Obama has garnered the help of highly influential individuals armed with wide social networks and equally deep pockets to help bring him one step closer to securing four more years in the White House.

Included in this list of bundlers are African American supporters of President Obama, such as multimillionaire Mellody Hobson, Texas Sen. Rodney Ellis, and iconic filmmaker Spike Lee, all of whom have organized multiple fundraisers and donated to Obama's campaign.

Check out these black power players from across the nation who have successfully raised funds stemming from $50,000 dollars to over $500,000 for Obama for America and the Obama Victory Fund in 2012, as reported by the President's official website.
