Update: The Chronicle's sports desk has informed me that Garner was in Big Sky yesterday and posed for a picture with the MSU Volleyball team.

Final day of our team retreat and a few lucky players ran into Jennifer Garner in Big Sky!

Hollywood star Jennifer Garner will be in Bozeman on Thursday for a Hillary Clinton fundraiser.

From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Garner will be hosted at the home of Penelope and Benjamin Pierce, according to a Clinton campaign fundraising email. Penelope is the executive director of the Gallatin Valley Land Trust.

Co-hosts include Democrats:

  • Carol Williams and her daughter Whitney Williams, a former Hillary Clinton trips director (no mention of Pat)
  • State Rep. Chris & Maddy Pope
  • Bob and Sally Sands
  • Bozeman Mayor Carson & Dede Taylor

Garner, 44, was photographed in Los Angeles earlier this week. She may be headed up to the private Yellowstone Club in Big Sky where she's known to vacation.

But Hearing Garner speak costs a minimum $100 contribution to Clinton's campaign, the email from the campaign says there is limited availability for $100 donors.
