Mitt Romney's Chicago fund-raisers: Top tab, $75,000

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney hits Chicago in May and June for fund-raisers with the price for an event on June 14 ranging from $2,500 to $75,000.

The June 14 reception and dinner is for a joint fund benefiting the Romney campaign, the Republican National Committee and a handful of stateparties in battleground states. Romney is in the Chicago suburbs on May 15 for a high dollar dinner hosted by insurance mogul and civic leader Pat Ryan and his wife Shirley.

The June event is tiered, meaning donors can get perks--a private dinner or a picture--depending on what they contribute.

Below, the invite for the June Romney event:

"... I am asking you to mark the evening of Thursday, June 14, 2012 on your calendar. We will be hosting an evening reception and private dinner with Governor Romney. Location and specific time are to be determined. Ticket price is $2,500 per individual for the general reception, with photo-opportunity available for those who give or raise $10,000 and private dinner available for those who give $25,000. If you wish to serve on the host committee, please contact us.

"This event is really important as it goes to Romney Victory, which is a joint fundraising committee between Romney for President, the Republican National Committee, and several battleground fund states.

"In short, the money raised from this event fund Governor Romney's efforts to defeat President Obama. If you are on your blackberry or Ipad, below are the event details and attached is the form.

"This election cycle will see an unprecedented race between candidates to raise - and spend -- the most money. We must do all we can to strengthen Mitt's position, and his ability to compete with Obama. We ask for your support of this event as we are now accepting money for the general election.

"Thank you,

Lisa Wagner
