Buffett to Host $35K Obama Seminar

Thursday, 25 Aug 2011 12:03 PM

Billionaire Warren Buffett will host an “economic forum” fundraiser for President Barack Obama in New York City next month with VIP tickets topping out at $35,800 a head, reports the New York Post.

The Berkshire Hathaway CEO will be joined by former White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee to host the event. The location is set for Sept. 30 at the Four Seasons in Manhattan, the Post reports. Tickets start at  $10,000 a plate.

For that hefty price, "guests get an hour of 'Q&A moderated by one of President Obama’s closest economic advisers, Austan Goolsbee,' " the Post says.

VIP ticket-holders get a “private reception for about 20 minutes prior to the dinner.”

Buffet, the invites say, will go to all the tables to greet guests accompanied by Goolsbee," the paper reports.

On tap for discussion is Buffet's recent announcement that the wealthy should pay higher taxes.

One invitee told the Post: “Nothing like advocating tax equality when you are charging $35,800 a ticket.”
