A Culver City fundraiser for President Obama on Thursday will include a number of entertainers, according to a Democratic source.

Supporters who attend the event will hear performances from comedian Jamie Foxx, singer Jason Mraz, DJ J-Boogie and the youth choir from the Foshay Learning Center. Actress Rashida Jones will welcome the crowd. The event will take place at Sony Picture Studios, with supporters paying between $100 and $2,500 to attend.

Obama is hosting two other fundraisers Thursday, more intimate gatherings that are expected to draw Hollywood heavyweights, with tickets costing up to $35,800 per person. The Obama campaign will receive $5,000, with the remainder going to the Democratic National Committee.
