Beyonce and Jay-Z will be Hosting a Fundraiser for Barack Obama: Tickets Cost $40,000
There is a new celebrity packed fundraiser for Obama. Can you afford to attend?
Forget about the recession, the celebrities are out in force to support President Barack Obama in his re-election efforts. Recent reports indicated that Mitt Romney was catching up in the fundraising stakes. The Obama camp swung into gear and the latest figures show that they have taken in more than the GOP candidate in the last recorded period. Nevertheless Jay-Z, Beyonce and a host of other celebrities are not leaving things to chance. The husband and wife will be hosting a $40,000 ticket fundraiser for the President.
- The stars are lending their support: This hip-hop royal couple will host President Barack Obama at the 40/40 Club which is owned by Jay-Z. It is no secret that Beyonce is a fan of the Obamas having written gushing letters in support of Michelle as a role model. Now they are putting their money where their mouths are.
The New York Post reports that the 100 guest will be paying $40,000 each to dine with the President of the USA at the New York Club. The effort is designed to raise money for his re-election campaign. The candidates for the Democratic Party and the GOP have been confirmed. Obama will take on Romney on the 6th of November when the US Presidential Elections are held.
A celebrity couple that is supporting the president
Both Beyonce and Jay-Z are long term supporters of Barack Obama. They played a tribute concert to him in 2008 just before he took his oath of office for a first term. Just last week Obama appeared in a video clip to open the ‘Made in America Festival’ which was held in Philadelphia. He urged the crowed to vote. Meanwhile Beyonce has voiced support for the First Lady Michelle Obama on several occasions.
They are not the only musicians to support the campaign. Just last month the Brooklyn band The National played at a rally for Obama in Iowa where the incumbent was campaigning for the swing state. The Foo Fighters dedicated their track ‘My Hero’ to Obama as they played a two-song acoustic set at the Democratic National Convention which was deemed to be a great success.
