"Batman" Affleck backs Booker with fundraiser

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Affleck and Damon, along with Jennifer Garner, producer J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, and a slew of other high-profile supporters, will co-host Booker at businessman Ron Burkle’s home on Sep. 23.

Tickets to the celeb-packed fundraiser will range in price from $1,000 to $10,000, according to the Reporter.

The revelation that Affleck, 41, would don the bat suit drew sharp criticism from many social media users last week. But Booker, a prolific Twitter user, came to the “Argo” director’s defense, tweeting that he was “pro-Ben.”
