WASHINGTON--Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is hitting Chicago: Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) snared her for a fund-raising dinner scheduled for Monday evening--that had been set for about the same time she was booked at the University of Chicago.
The invite for the fund-raiser put the price tag at $2,500 for the Schock event, billed as a "private dinner" to start 7:30 p.m. at the North Side home of Laura and Greg Mutz, the international real estate mogul.
Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster reported earlier that Rice will appear Tuesday at the Union League Club.
The U of C said in a press release, "Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, the Nov. 14 event featuring former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. has been postponed.
"The event was scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, at International House. Rice and the organizers will work to reschedule a visit to the University of Chicago at a later date."
Rice is on a tour for her new book, "No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington"
