It seems tickets for an upcoming Obama fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay Z in NY aren’t selling quickly enough. So singer Beyonce sent out a personal email to well-heeled President Obama supporters begging them to plunk down $40,000 for a ticket to attend the fundraiser.
“I usually don’t email you,” writes Beyonce in each personalized email to Obama supporters. “but I have an amazing invitation I have to share.”
“Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!,” she adds.
It isn’t like the email recipients don’t know that Obama will be holding a fundraiser in NYC with Beyonce and Jay Z — they just don’t want to pay $40,000 for a ticket to attend.
Read the email Beyonce sent to Charlie Sperling, a writer for the Washington Examiner after the break.
I usually don’t email you — but I have an amazing invitation I have to share.
Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!
Until midnight tonight, if you pitch in $15 or whatever you can, you’ll be automatically entered to be flown out to join us.
I’ve had the honor of meeting President Obama and the First Lady a few times — and believe me — it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
Don’t worry about the airfare and hotel, it’s taken care of. And you can bring a guest.
But the countdown is on — this opportunity ends at midnight:
Can’t wait to meet you!
