Melanie Griffith Banderas to host Obama Latino funder

When President Obama returns to Los Angeles Oct. 24, the Futuro Fund event will be held at the Hancock Park area home of actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas. Eva Longoria is co-chair of the event. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also has billing for the event, which Tina Daunt calls "he first ever national Latino gala for Obama's candidacy." The last time Obama attended a private-home event in the Hancock Park area, the multi-hour traffic snarls that resulted led to the coining of the term Obamajam.
