Half of the proceeds from the Santa Monica, Calif., event will benefit Battleground Texas, the statewide field operation established to make Texas more competitive for Democrats, while the other half will fund the Davis campaign directly. Guests are asked to contribute between $1,000 and $25,000.
Both candidates have tapped the star power of famous friends for fundraising purposes. In February, Abbott toured alongside rocker Ted Nugent at campaign stops in North Texas. In April, Texas legend Willie Nelson sang at a high-dollar fundraiser for Davis.
