Democratic National Committee to host first in-person fundraising event

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will hold its first in-person and indoor fundraising event next week.

The context: Next Wednesday there will be a reception in honor of the new DNC president, Jaime Harrison, a former lobbyist, featuring a performance by legendary singer-songwriter Carole King.

  • Tickets will cost $ 1,000, depending on the invitation. Attendees can pay $ 5,000 to appear as supporters or $ 10,000 to appear as friends.
  • Taxpayers who contribute $ 36,500, the maximum amount that an individual can give to the party’s national committee, may have a “more intimate meeting,” according to the invitation.

And now that? The celebration of this event marks the return of Democrats to the usual method of fundraising, more than a year and a half after rubbing shoulders with donors was limited to calls from Zoom.

  • In addition there will be a second fundraiser, which is more geared towards long-time donors, which will take place outdoors, and will require proof of vaccination and mask.
  • Attendees must show proof of vaccination and a negative Covid test from the last 24 hours. There will also be a nurse on site who will administer the rapid tests.
  • Democratic officials are weighing whether to engage with donors in person due to the growing risks of contagion from the delta variant.
