Hillary Clinton, who raised $3 million for her presidential campaign in Los Angeles back in May, returned to the entertainment capital Friday to attend two star-studded fundraisers, reports Variety.

One event was hosted by actor Tobey Maguire at his Brentwood estate and included celebrity guests Leonardo DiCaprio (and his mother), Elizabeth Banks, Dustin Lance Black, producer Howard Gordon, and producer Bruce Cohen.

An attendee told the entertainment site that Clinton recited a line from a previous speech, in which she said she would be the youngest woman elected president in our nation’s history.

Clinton also addressed the South Carolina shootings, saying that more work must be done to bridge a gap between race and religion in various parts of the nation.

She also discussed her experience in foreign affairs, while citing former colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as among the funniest of her Republican contenders.

Clinton stopped by a separate event at Hancock Park earlier in the evening, which was hosted by Michael Lombardo, HBO’s president of programming, and his husband. That event was reportedly aimed at LGBT donors and had nearly 120 guests.

One attendee said Clinton posed for photographs, addressed issues within the LGBT community, and shared stories from her campaign trail about people who have approached her with fears of being rejected because of their sexual orientation.

Clinton also raised money at the home of Westfield Corp. Co-CEO Peter Lowy.

The cost to attend each event, closed to the press, was $2,700 per person.
