The CEO and chairman of Walt Disney Co. plans to throw a fundraiser later this month to bolster vulnerable Democratic candidates in upcoming elections.

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger will throw the Feb. 22 event along with Alan Horn, another chairman at Walt Disney studios and his wife, reports Vanity Fair. Guests are invited to donate $32,400, the highest possible contribution.

The fundraiser is meant to boost six Democratic congressmen like Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. Each of the six senators are up for re-election in states that ended up overwhelmingly voting for President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Iger has donated to Democrats in the past, giving $50,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee over the course of two years and another $25,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
