Romney hits Chicago next Thursday: Raise $25,000, get private dinner with Mitt

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--GOP White House hopeful Mitt Romney hits Chicago on Thursday for a high end fund-raiser hosted by Susan Crown (of the Crown family) and her husband William Kunkler.

The Oct. 27 event is 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Ivy Room at Tree Studios, 12 East Ohio. There is a sliding scale for donors: if you are a "bundler" pledging to raise $25,000 you are an event co-chair who will get a private dinner with Romney. An under-40 Romney backer can get in for $100.

Romney has the strongest Illinois organization of any of the Republican 2012 contenders and the list of his co-hosts for his Chicago event shows fund-raising fire-power:
Robert H. Asher
Congresswoman Judy Biggert
Charlie Bobrinskoy
John Canning
Mayor Roger Claar
Dan Dumezich
Ty Fahner
Michael Ferro
Randy Fifield
Steven Fifield
Howard Foster
Matt Gambs
David Hoese
Richard Jaffee
Fred Krehbiel
Tim Larsen
Robert McCormack
Andy McKenna, Jr.
Richard Porter
Stephen Quazzo
J. Christopher Reyes
John Rowe
Treasurer Dan Rutherford, Illinois Romney chair
Muneer Satter
William Strong
Alexander Stuart
Miles White

There's a lot of political money in the Chicago area: First Lady Michelle Obama is in Chicago on Tuesday for a fund-raiser for the 2012 re-election bid and healthy eating events with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The Chicago Sun-Times Stella Foster reported that another GOP White House hopeful, Herman Cain, will headline a fund-raiser Tuesday.
