Obama Headlines His Own Jay-Z and Beyonce-Hosted Fundraiser
(AllHipHop News) Tonight (September 18), President Barack Obama is headlining Jay-Z and Beyonce's 100-person fundraising event at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club near Madison Square Park in the Chelsea district of New York City.
Tickets were reportedly $40,000 per attendee as proceeds will be benefiting the Obama Victory Fund, a fundraising account of the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
In addition to another event that Obama is hosting this evening, the Obama campaign expects to raise over $5 million today in support is his re-election bid.
Both Beyonce and Jay-Z have been outspoken supporters of the Obama administration as Beyonce penned a letter to First Lady Michelle Obama earlier this summer, and Jay-Z has made statements frequently in support of President Obama throughout the campaign.
