Hillary Clinton is heading to the Hamptons at the end of the month for a three-day fundraising sprint that includes a dinner hosted by singers Jimmy Buffett and Jon Bon Jovi, according to sources familiar with the Democratic presidential candidate’s fundraising schedule.

Barbra Streisand and Cher also are hosting fundraising events for Clinton in the coming weeks, in Manhattan and on Fire Island.

Clinton is scheduled to attend six to nine East End fundraising events Aug. 29-30. Sources said the events are expected to generate from $500,000 to $1 million each for Clinton’s campaign against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The Hamptons fundraising blitz includes a “dinner and dancing” reception hosted by Buffett and Jon Bon Jovi at Buffett’s North Haven estate on Aug. 30. The singers will perform at the $25,000-a-head fundraiser sources told Newsday.

Other events include a “Family Garden Party” on Aug. 28, where entry costs $33,400 for adults and $2,700 for children. Photos taken with the former secretary of state will cost an additional $10,000.

On Aug. 29 there will be a cocktail reception in East Hampton, with admission ranging in price from $33,000 to $100,000.

An afternoon cocktail reception will be held in Sagaponack on Aug. 30, with sponsorship levels of $10,000, $33,000 and $100,000. A fundraising dinner in Quogue is also scheduled that day.

Hosts for the events include philanthropist Barbara-Lee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, who serves as chairwoman of the New York State Council on the Arts, and businessman Alan Patricof, the founder of private equity firm Apax Industries.

Cher will headline a fundraising concert for Clinton on Aug. 20 on Fire Island with tickets costing from $250 to $2,500. Clinton is not expected to appear at the event.

Barbra Streisand will host a fundraiser for Clinton on Sept. 9 at Cipriani Wall Street, which Clinton is expected to attend. Tickets for the event range in price from $1,200 to $250,000.
