Members of the Clinton family — for the most part — have maintained a relatively low profile since Hillary Clinton’s devastating defeat in the 2016 presidential election.
Now, however, The Clinton Foundation is hosting its first post-Trump gala on May 24, and tickets are selling for anywhere between $2,500 and $100,000.
What are the details?
According to Axios, prices for the tickets “ranging from $2,500 (‘Friend’) for cocktail party and dinner, up to $100,000 (‘Chair’) for ‘Leadership Reception for two, a premium table of ten, program recognition as Gala Chair and invitations to the Clinton Foundation Annual Briefing.'”
If you can’t afford such steep prices, have no fear: the foundation’s website offers an option to give a donation as low as $5 in order to be entered to win a chance to “meet the Clintons” at this year’s gala.
If the smaller donations still aren’t crumbs to you, you can forego the donation and simply enter the contest through a fine-print backlink here. The website explicitly states that “a donation of any kind will not increase your chances of winning.”
The Initiative shut down in April 2017.
What about the donations from other countries?
The Clinton Foundation faced heavy scrutiny during the 2016 presidential election and was criticized for taking donations from foreign countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Algeria.
Axios reported that the foundation’s “streamlined mission” is to “create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.”
Those expected to be featured at the benefit include musicians Sting and Shaggy, in addition to Hillary, Bill, and daughter Chelsea.
