Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump will conduct what is likely Los Angeles' costliest political fundraiser Thursday night in Bel Air with a top ticket price of $449,400 per couple.
The ticket price is based on the maximum individual contributions permitted to a presidential candidate, $2,700, the maximum to a national party committee, $33,400, and the $100,200 maximum to additional national party accounts which pay for the national convention and national party headquarters buildings.
Additional funds go to various state Republican parties.
The ticket purchasers will join Trump for dinner, have a photo taken with him, be admitted to an earlier reception and be part of the campaign's "Presidential Trust,'' according to an invitation obtained by City News Service.
A couple paying $250,000 will also join Trump for dinner, have a photo taken with him, be admitted to the reception and be part of the campaign's "Chairman's Circle.''
A couple paying $100,000 will also join Trump for dinner, have a photo taken with him, be admitted to the reception and be designated as a vice chair of the event. The cost to attend the dinner, reception and have a photo taken with Trump is $25,000 per person.
Having a picture taken with Trump and being admitted to the reception is $10,800 per couple. Admission to the reception is $2,700 per person.
The fundraisers come one day before Trump plans to announce his vice presidential running mate in New York City. Reports were already circulating today that he would choose Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
