(Newser) – Dinner with the president not enough for you? You're in luck: The Obama campaign has sweetened the deal. George Clooney will also be joining winners of the campaign's "Dinner With Barack" contest, which offers a monthly chance at a presidential meal for donations as low as a dollar. "Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a chance to be George Clooney's guest at a reception for President Obama," the campaign says in a fundraising request.

"George Clooney is doing his part to help re-elect the President, but he knows that it's grassroots supporters like you who will decide this election," the message continues. The meals aren't really aimed at raking in cash, Politico notes. Instead, the dinners are intended to boost the ratio of small donors to big ones as Obama continues to target larger donations.
