Melania Trump is the seldom-seen first lady but every her appearance becomes a real event. On Friday night, the wife of US President spotted at Mar-a-Lago resort, which Trump calls ‘the Southern White House’. The First Lady met with donors at a pre-dinner VIP reception after GOP drops $150,000 to rent ballroom.
The first lady spent Friday night with the donors at Mar-a-Lago resort, while Mr President preferred to skip this resort’s fundraising event. Melania Trump made herself available for a meet and greet at a VIP reception preceding the fundraiser.
According to the local press, at least 700 people paid $300 and more to attend the dinner at ‘the Southern White House’. The Palm Beach Post informs that Palm Beach County GOP Chairman Michael Barnett said the dinner cost around $150,000 to rent Trump’s ballroom. During the interview, Mr Barnett expressed his hope that this annual fundraising dinner would bring in close to $300,000 before expenses.
The first lady’s cameo was really helpful for the fundraising dinner, Mrs Trump met with donors and Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott, she posed for photos and had a conversation with the VIP guests at the pre-dinner section. The first lady spent Friday dinner alone, her husband shared his plans on Saturday, he was scheduled to head out to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia for meetings.
