Big Rudy Guy and Allan Houston to Raise Money for Obama

On May 19th, commodity trading billionaire Paul Tudor Jones II will host a fund-raiser for Barack Obama, according to a knowledgeable source. The event will be held at Jones' oceanfront Greenwich mansion, which reportedly sits on top of a 25-car garage.

More than 500 guests are expected to attend.

Interestingly, according to The New York Times DealBook, Jones also sits on Rudy Giuliani's finance committee.

A column on The published last month called Mr. Jones "a known trend follower but also an extremely risk-averse investor who rigorously gets out of losing positions."

Later that night, the source said, Obama will be the beneficiary of another fund-raiser in Greenwich, this one hosted by former Knick Allan Houston.
