The fundraiser will be at the home of Louis DeJoy, the former CEO of New Breed Logistics and a Republican mega donor. DeJoy gave more than $111,000 to the Trump Victory Fund, $233,000 to the Republican National Committee and another $100,000 to the inauguration committee.
DeJoy’s wife, Dr. Aldona Wos, was named by Trump as vice-chairwoman of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. Under former Gov. Pat McCrory, Wos led the state Department of Health and Human Services.
The dinner is to support Trump and the Republican National Committee, according to an email invitation from DeJoy. Trump, other members of the administration, members of Congress and members of the RNC are expected to attend.
It costs $15,000 per couple for preferential seating at the dinner and a VIP reception before or after the president speaks. There are also donation levels at $100,000, $50,000 and $35,000 per couple, according to the invitation.The News & Observer
