Howard Gold, whose family founded the 99 Cents Only store chain, called his bash the “99% Party,” with tickets selling for $27 per person. 

An email invite sent to Sanders supporters Saturday reads: “Swimming pools, Movie Stars, and merriment for all! This is happening right next door to Clooney's party for Hillary!"

The invite also notes that "no-one (will be) turned away for a lack of funds."

Hollywood’s power brokers, meanwhile, have spent weeks selling high-dollar tickets, starting at $33,400 per person, to the Clooney event in Studio City. Co-hosts include Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and Haim and Cheryl Saban. 

Gold's event turned into a pool party, pro-Sanders event and Clinton protest. As Clinton's motorcade arrived on the street headed to the Clooneys,' protesters showered her car with $1 bills.
