Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to hold a fundraiser for her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in Hancock Park on Feb. 22.

Tickets for the evening reception are $2,700, according to an invitation obtained by City News Service. Individuals raising $10,000 will be co-hosts of the event and will have a photo taken with Clinton.

Individuals raising $27,000 will have a photo taken with Clinton, receive a ticket to a host reception and become members of the Hillary for America Finance Committee.

The maximum individual contribution under federal law for a candidate seeking his or her party’s presidential nomination is $2,700.

The fundraiser will be held at the home of Jon Vein, the chief strategy officer and a co-founder of MarketShare, which describes itself as the world’s leading analytics technology provider for major brand marketers, and his wife, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, a movie producer.

The trip to Southern California will be the seventh for the 68-year-old Clinton since she declared her candidacy on April 12. She held 17 fundraisers, participated in a roundtable discussion with a group of home care providers, appeared on the ABC late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and helped introduce the “Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Hillary” initiative during her previous visits to the region.

The fundraiser is set for two days after the Nevada caucuses and five days before the South Carolina primary.
