Miami Beach clubs might pay celebs ridiculous appearance fees every once in awhile, but few can get $1 million just for showing up. Count the president of the United States in the club, but of course that money isn't going into his pocket. Instead, the funds raised from the Democratic dinner headlined by Barack Obama at the Fontainebleau tonight will go to help Democratic congressional candidates. Congresswoman and DNC vice chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the event will raise more than $1 million. Tickets for the event started at $500 and topped out at $100,000.
