See Who's Donating to Obama's Inauguration

Connecticut's famous, and even not-so-famous residents are chipping in for President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration. 

Twenty five state residents have contributed a total of $575,450 to the Presidential Inaugural Committee as of last week. 

Ten gave the maximum allowed $50,000, including actor/director and Greenwich resident Ron Howard and and former state Treasurer Francisco Borges. 

The committee has already collected more than $24 million nationally, but unlike past years, the inaugural committee is not accepting donations from corporations, political action committees, labor unions or lobbyists.

Anyone who contributes more than $200 is listed on the committee's Web site. You can find out who else in Connecticut has contributed here

Anyone who contributes at least $5 to the inaugural committee could be chosen at random to be one of 10 people flown, with a guest to Washington D.C. to participate in the Jan. 20 festivities.
