It looks like Chelsea Clinton will not be headlining a fundraiser for her mother and presidential contender, Hillary Clinton, at the controversial Silicon Valley health technology firm Theranos after all.
Earlier this week, Re/code reported that emails advertising the fundraiser to be held Monday, March 21, suggested the fundraiser would be held at the firm's headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
That raised eyebrows, because Theranos and its high visibility founder Elizabeth Holmes have come under intense scrutiny in the wake of a Wall Street Journal investigation that questioned the blood testing technology marketed by Theranos.
But now an official invitation to the event, obtained by CNBC, shows that the Clinton fundraiser will not be held at the company's offices, but instead at the private home of Susie Hwang and Matt Glickman in Palo Alto. Holmes is listed first on a list of 11 female Silicon Valley figures hosting the event. According to the invitation, hosts contribute or raise $2,700 for Hillary for America presidential campaign, and attend a reception with the former first daughter.
The event "is not connected to a specific company or policy, but a chance to talk directly to women in tech," said a Clinton campaign official in an email to CNBC. "We frequently send initial invitations while host committees are still being formed and locations finalized. This was never a health care event and the location wasn't set. It will not be at Theranos."
Among the other hosts of the event are Aarthi Belani, a Silicon Valley based associate at the law firm Jones Day, Nina Blackwell, executive director of the Firelight Foundation a former Senate staffer for Hillary Clinton and a former Yahoo! executive. Also on the list: Stanford Law professor Michele Dauber, Theranos general counsel and former Clinton Senate policy advisor Heather King.
