Vince Carter may be better-known for his scoring, but the NBA star and Mainland High School graduate will be looking to make an assist to President Barack Obama by hosting a fundraising dinner at his Windermere home during the NBA All-Star Weekend.
Cost of admission: $30,000.
Attorney John Morgan, a big Democratic Party fundraiser, is organizing the evening he described as "a once in a life time event," in an email to invitees.
"The room will be filled with NBA hall of famers and future hall of famers and some musical superstars," he said.
About 40 guests are expected at the Feb. 23 party, three days before the NBA all-star game is played in Orlando. The fundraiser will support the Barack Obama Victory Fund.

Is Vince Carter white or black?? Not that STUPID comes in colors, but just wondering.
STUCK ON STUPID! ! ! ! ! ! !
He puts the ‘insanity’ in ‘Vinsanity’....but will he gladly pay more of his 1% millionaire taxes like bro Bammy preaches?
As a die-hard UNC Tar Heel basketball fan, I have to say that Vince has totally embarrassed the whole UNC family.
Who will be the shortest guy inthe room?
Hi Ann Arnchy.
Widipedia has a photo of him.
He is black and looks more than stupid.
Maybe he was punched in the head just before the photo was taken.

Let’s hit them in the pocketbook. Don’t watch the games and boycott the sponsors. We need to fight these commie supporters where they live.
I heard his team’s owner, Mark Cuban, is going to assess a 10% surcharge on all his players, kinda like the unions do/dues, to give to the Obama campaign.
I think there should be a special 30% “athelete” and “artist” tax for all professional atheletes and Hollywood types — you know, to support the 99% of atheletes and starving artists that don’t make millions of dollars. I wonder how they would like that.
So I’ve read time and time again. My feelings won’t be hurt if it happens to him.
Bambi makes it easy for 85% of Athletes to vote, he just reminds them that he is black.
30 grand per plate huh? Does that come with fries?
This little dinner party is just a couple of miles from house. This in the Windemer enclave where Tiger Woods, Shaq and a bunch of pro golfer and other pro atheletes live. Ken Griffey Jr.moved away a few years ago to his own sprawling ranch.
Very very good idea. I am going to declare myself an artist. Where is my cut? Also, where the hell is my GM profit sharing check?
