Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is about to get another infusion of cash thanks to Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Leonardo DiCaprio, and their activist allies within the entertainment industry.

Mr. Weinstein is hosting his second fundraiser for the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Monday night in New York City. Academy Award winner Mr. DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Matthew Broderick will serve as co-hosts for the event.

The New York Post, which first teased details of the event June 16, said roughly 50 guests will be in attendance at Mr. Weinstein’s Manhattan home. Donations will benefit the Hillary Victory Fund.

Fashion designer Anna Wintour teamed up with Mr. Weinstein for his first fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton. Attendees at that event were granted a picture with the former secretary of state for a $2,700 donation, the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday.

Mr. Weinstein has also donated at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
