Don Cheadle wants to party with you and your checkbook.
There are some perks to living in a state known for determining national elections. Or maybe there are just perks to living close to people who actually have money. You decide.
Case in point: Tonight, Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle
will be at a fundraiser in Shaker Heights for Barack Obama. You’ll just need 500 bucks to get anywhere near the guy.
Deborah and Ron Ratner of Forest City fame
will be hosting the party at their home. Co-hosts include county commissioners Tim Hagan and Peter Lawson Jones.
