Kelsey Grammer is helping Arnold Schwarzenegger boost his Hollywood following as he runs for California Governor by staging a star-studded fundraiser for the action man.

The TERMINATOR star is currently ahead of fellow candidates in the race for Governor, and now he's set for one of the biggest boosts of his campaign, thanks to the FRASIER star, who last week (ends26SEP03) admitted he has an interest in a political career.

Grammer will host what he's calling the Los Angeles Celebration Honouring the Next Governor of California on Thursday night (02OCT03) - five days before election day.

Tickets for the gala will be $500 (GBP325) each, while anyone who donates the maximum $21,200 (GBP13,250) will be granted a private audience with Arnie for him and three guests.

Ironically, the venue of the party, Los Angeles' CENTURY PLAZA HOTEL, is the same place where current Governor GRAY DAVIS staged a fundraiser on 18 September (03), which was attended by Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty and BRUCE WILLIS.
