HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are hosting a fundraiser with first lady Michelle Obama at their California home, President Obama's campaign website said.

The star-studded Oct. 25 event in Calabasas is co-hosted by Salma Hayek, Roc Nation co-founder Jay Brown and his wife Kawanna, film producer James Lassiter and his wife Mai, and Lady Gaga's manager, Troy Carter and his wife Rebecca, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

Tickets to the lunch cost $2,500 per person, though a $10,000 donation to the Obama Victory Fund gets attendees a photo with Michelle Obama, the campaign website said. Attendees can take part in a meet-and-greet with the first lady before the meal for a $40,000 contribution.

Michelle Obama will travel Oct. 26 to La Jolla, Calif., for a fundraiser hosted by Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs and his wife, Joan, The Hollywood Reporter said.
