WASHINGTON – Democratic White House hopeful Hillary Clinton comes home to Chicago on Sept. 17 for a high dollar fundraiser that will also feature campaign chair John Podesta, another Chicago native.

The noon reception will be at the Gold Coast home of Tanya and Michael Polsky, the Invenergy LLC CEO who in 2014 also hosted President Barack Obama at a fundraiser.

The price points:

*One ticket, $2,700

*Roundtable discussion with Podesta, host reception with Clinton, “Hillstarter” membership, listed as “co-host,” raise from other people $27,000

*For more prominent mention, raise $50,000 and get all of the above plus listing as a “host”

For the record: This will be Clinton’s fourth visit to Chicago since launching her presidential campaign. On July 21, Rajiv Fernando, a Clinton Foundation supporter and a bundler for President Barack Obama, hosted a high dollar event for the former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady.

Clinton was in Chicago on June 23 and had two days of fundraising events on May 19 and 20 plus a visit to an SEIU childcare center on the South Side.
