New York (CNN) -- Hillary Clinton will host a high-dollar fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu, an embattled Democratic incumbent who finds herself behind in a closely watched runoff to reelection.
The Dec. 1 event, which will be hosted at the New York City home of Sarah & Victor Kovner, longtime Clinton supporters, will boost Landrieu's coffers after she was unable to best her opponent Bill Cassidy on Election Day. Polls currently show the Republican with a sizable lead in the runoff.Tickets to the event start at $1,000 and go up to $12,000. The event is being branded as "Cocktails with Hillary Rodham Clinton in support of Sen. Mary Landrieu."Read more >>>>
In September 2010 at the Clinton Global Initiative, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the establishment of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. A public-private partnership led by the United Nations Foundation, the alliance seeks to introduce clean cookstoves to 100 million homes worldwide by the year 2020. Toxic fumes from cooking devices that consume solid fumes kill nearly two million people a year and represent one of the top five health risks in poor and developing countries.
At the third annual meeting of the alliance, in September 2013, Hillary assumed the leadership chair at the alliance. Today, in New York City, she attended the USAID Cookstoves Future Summit where she spoke to donors, activists and members of the media on the importance of this initiative.

Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Rajiv Shah, and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy today announced up to $200 million in expected renewed and enhanced support by the United States for the clean cooking sector and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance).
These actions will help improve health, reduce environmental degradation, mitigate climate change, and generate economic empowerment and opportunity for women and girls.
Building on the United States’ initial commitment from 2011-2015, these new expected contributions bring the cumulative anticipated U.S. contribution commitment to this sector and the Alliance up to $325 million through 2020.
