Cher will be headlining a virtual LGBTQ fundraiser for Joe Biden, joined by Pete Buttigieg and other LGBTQ leaders.
The online event will be held on August 31 and will include the likes of Cher and Buttigieg as well as Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. David Cicilline, according to Deadline. Tickets start at $1,000 a person and rise all the way to $100,000. Donors of $50,000 or more will reportedly get to participate in a “virtual clutch.”
Cher has been a longtime vocal supporter of Biden, first endorsing the former vice president back in February. After his DNC acceptance speech, she reiterated her support on Twitter.
