Every year the White House Correspondents Association hosts a dinner where the members of the press gather with the president and the vice president for a meal and some entertainment. In recent years, it’s become a sort of “nerd prom” where journalists invite fancy Hollywood folks to hang out while a comedian (this year: Jimmy Kimmel) makes fun of politicos.
According to the WHCA, “The WHCA dinner is traditionally attended by the President and
First Lady as well as many other senior government officials and members
of the press corps. Proceeds from the dinner go toward scholarships and
awards aimed at supporting aspiring journalists and recognizing
excellence in the profession.”
The April 28, 2012 ceremony is hosted by Jimmy Kimmel with a star-studded guest list with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Tony Romo and more. For the full celeb lineup, click here.
