WASHINGTON — Cher and Diane von Furstenberg, the famed singer and designer, are hitting Chicago in the coming days to headline fundraisers for Hillary Clinton, according to invites obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.

A “Celebration with Cher” will take place on Sunday afternoon, with tickets ranging from $125 to $5,000 to be a “host” and get a VIP reception and a photo with Cher.

The Diane von Furstenberg event is on Tuesday, a week before the election at the Chicago home of M.K. Pritzker, who, with her husband J.B., are major backers of the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton presidential drive.

Tickets range from $500 to $2,700, which includes a VIP reception with von Furstenberg.
