Barack Obama paid a visit to Sarah Jessica Parker’s house for a star-studded fundraiser on Thursday.
Co-hosting with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, the Sex and the City star said that the guests gathered “hopefully, with enormous enthusiasm.”
Parker also praised First Lady Michelle Obama, calling her “our radiant and extraordinary first lady” and said she had been doing “amazingly important things these last 4 years.”
Parker’s husband, actor Matthew Broderick, could not attend the fundraiser.
“Matthew had a show,” the Politico quoted Obama as saying.
Other notable celebrity attendees included Bravo’s Andy Cohen, actress Meryl Streep and fashion designer Michael Kors.
During Obama’s stump speech, Parker’s young son interrupted Obama with applause.
“He wanted to fire up the crowd,” Obama joked.
“He knows an applause line,” Cohen said, roaring. “Right on cue!”
Approximately 50 guests attending the fundraiser, paying 40,000 dollars for the evening. The only exception was Robin Hunt, a project administrator at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, who won the monthly Obama campaign win-a-dinner contest.
