Donald Trump’s Aug. 24 appearance in Mississippi will include a fundraiser at an undisclosed location.

An event flyer lists donations ranging from $1,000 to $50,000.

For $50,000, a couple can go to a private “victory reception,” get a photo and have “exclusive seating” at a general reception. A mere $1,000 gets you in the door.

Of course, if you’re no party animal, you can still contribute.

“I am requesting that you plan on attending and supporting our Mississippi Republican leadership,” Harrison County Republican Executive Committee Chairman Frank Genzer wrote in an email Friday. “If the contribution levels are too steep for your budget, please give serious thought to any other amount that can be given to the TRUMP campaign to assure that we elect a Republican president in November 2016.”

Interested? Contact Aimee Garner at aimee@politicap.ms or 601-383-7107. Apparently, you have to RSVP to get the event’s address.
