The Obama campaign is offering the chance to win a spot at Clooney's dinner, in his Los Angeles home.

Who needs State dinners?

For just a few bucks you can snag a bite to eat with your favorite presidential candidate, their spouses and heck, even their favorite celebrities.

The most recent dining-for-dollars fundraising effort could score you a visit to George Clooney's house.

Last week, the Obama campaign announced that the movie star is having a little dinner party in his Los Angeles home for the president.

“If you donate $3 or whatever you can today, you’ll be automatically entered to be there, too,” read an email to supporters that went out Thursday, pointing out "it's just not a chance most people get — well, ever." The campaign will even pop for airfare and hotel accommodations. The Obama campaign has hosted a series of dinners with the president over the past few months, including a Washington D.C. get-together at an eatery in the city’s hip H Street corridor.

Mitt Romney’s camp offered folks a chance to chow down on burgers in California with the GOP contender for just $5 back in March as part of the “Grab a bite with Mitt” contest.

“These contests are always fun to be a part of — especially when the country’s best cheeseburger, fries and chocolate milkshake combination is involved,” noted Romney’s website.
