Mitt hits Lake Forest for 9-11 fund-raiser: top tab $151,600 per couple

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney hits Chicago on Sept. 11, for a dinner and reception at the Lake Forest home of Reeve and Melissa Waud. The price tag ranges from $2,500 for the reception to $25,000 for a private dinner. Hosts are expected to commit to raise $50,000. The maximum contribution is $75,800 per person or $151,600 per couple.

Romney and his wife Ann appeared at the Waud's Lake Forest home for a fund-raiser last November. Waud is a member of the Illinois Tool Works and Northern Trust Waud family.

The $75,800/$151,600 package includes a perk package called "Romney Victory Founding Partner Benefits," which is the name of the program that arranges for top level donor briefings and--for the Tampa GOP Convention next week--tickets to sessions, receptions, etc.

The Lake Forest dinner and reception is being billed as the the final fund-raiser in Illinois headlined by Romney.

Romney comes to Chicago after picking up the official Republican Presidential nomination in Tampa next week--and on a day marking the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
