Hillary Clinton has two new partners in crime on the campaign trail – her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and actress Drew Barrymore.

The mother-daughter duo are joining forces with the He’s Just Not That into You star and husband Will Kopelman to co-host a “Family Holiday Celebration with Hillary and Chelsea” in New York City on the afternoon of Dec. 17, according to an invitation reviewed by PEOPLE.

“This is going to be a great holiday party with fun for the whole family,” a source with knowledge of the event tells PEOPLE. “Guests are encouraged to bring their kids and there will be a cartoonist, face painting, balloon animals, a kids DJ, and snowflake making.”

And Barrymore isn’t the only Hollywood star who will be attending – Katie Holmes will be there too, the source reveals. (No word on whether her daughter, Suri, will be there to enjoy all the kid-friendly fun.)

Plus, “There will be performances by Yale’s top two a cappella groups, the Whiffenpoofs and Whim ‘n Rhythm.”

Tickets for the event start at $250 and go up to $2,700 per family. Hosts, meanwhile, are required to raise $10,000 or contribute $5,600 per family.

Chelsea Clinton Gushes About ‘Beautiful’ Baby Charlotte

The party marks Chelsea’s first time headlining a 2016 fundraiser for her mother. Up until now the former first daughter has largely been on the sidelines of her mother’s second presidential bid, making only rare public appearances with Clinton and attending some fundraisers.

Chelsea played a more active role in her mother’s 2008 presidential campaign, stumping across the country for the then-senator – but of course, that was before Chelsea welcomed her first child, daughter Charlotte, last year.

The Dec. 17 holiday gathering – which is expected to be large as Clinton tries to reach her $100 million goal for the primary election before year’s end – will be followed by a more intimate fundraiser featuring her husband, Bill Clinton, and a performance by rocker Sting. Tickets for that event start at $33,400.
