Jay-Z and Beyoncé are throwing a $40,000-a-plate fundraiser for President Obama at Hov's 40/40 Club in New York City next Tuesday, The Hill reports.
Don't have the cash? No problem: like previous Obama celebrity fundraisers, supporters can donate smaller amounts and be entered for a chance to join the festivities (airfare and hotel accommodations included, according to Obama's website). Attendance for the event will reportedly be capped at just 100.
Earlier that same day Obama is scheduled appear at another New York City fundraiser where a $12,500 contribution will score supporters a photo with the president.
This isn't the first show of support for Obama from Jay-Z and Beyoncé. While the president was unable to accept Jay's invitation to show up in Philadelphia for the recent Budweiser Made in America Festival, he did send a video message urging audience members to vote in the upcoming election.
Jay-Z also showed up on Obama's celebrity supporter wishlist earlier this year, alongside Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Alicia Keys, Vampire Weekend and Janelle Monáe. A $40,000-a-plate fundraiser definitely means you can check his name off the list.
