Obama Victory Fund to hold fundraiser with stars from 'The Wire'

The Obama Victory Fund and supporters have announced a fundraiser on August 15th with the cast of the HBO series The Wire. Highly acclaimed as one of the best TV series of all time, The Wire aired on HBO for 5 seasons from 2002-2008.

It is unclear which stars from the popular series will be attending the event, which will be hosted by Judy and Ron Davenport at their home in Martha’s Vineyard, but tickets can be purchased for $500 a guest, $2,500 per host, on the Obama campaign website.

Although President Obama has noted ‘The Wire’ as one of his favorite television shows and Omar as his favorite character, the president is not scheduled to attend the fundraiser.
