Hillary Clinton continues to dodge direct media questions as she jets off for her first official fundraising trip to the Bay Area since quietly making her campaign for President official.

Clinton is set to scoop up official campaign donations from political heavyweights at six official fundraising events. Events are spread between the Bay area and Los Angeles this week.

This week’s events will be closed to media , according to the Contra Costa Times.

Clinton has made headlines for her unprecedented evasion from media since announcing her bid for President. Meanwhile, Breitbart editor-at-large Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash continues to draw heavy questions regarding questionable financial transactions surrounding Hillary, Bill and the Clinton Foundation.

Entrance to the Clinton fundraisers costs a $2,700 per-person contribution. Hillary’s first stop is with billionaire fossil-fuel-investor-turned-global-warming-activist Tom Steyer’s home for an event co-hosted with his wife, Kat Taylor. The event is set for Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m.

Three hours later Clinton will make her second San Francisco fundraising stop at the home of Hillary buddy Susie Tompkins Buell and her husband Mark. Mrs. Buell is cofounder of Esprit and the North Face.

She will then jet down to Los Angeles for three events, returning for a final Friday event up north.
