Former President Bill Clinton is headlining a fundraiser to raise money for the Democratic National Convention at the home of longtime Democratic donors Haim and Cheryl Saban.
The event is raising money for the Committee for Charlotte 2012. According to the invite, tickets are $100,000 per couple, which includes a photo and lunch, as well as a “convention package” of the donor’s choice. One offers two hotel rooms and four credentials, the other offers one “premier uptown hotel room” and two “premier credentials.” Other tickets to the lunch go for $50,000 and $25,000, offering credentials to the convention.
The Committee for Charlotte is set up as a 501(c)(3) organization and does not take money from corporations or lobbyists. But organizers in Charlotte have set up another committee, New American City, that can take money from corporations, with the contributions used for hospitality and promotional events.
