Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is holding two fundraisers in London during the evening of July 26, the day before the Olympic Games begin there.

The events are being hosted by a range of business luminaries, including several bankers. The first event is at 5 p.m. with a reception requiring a $2,500 donation, and the second is a 6:30 p.m. dinner requiring at $25,000 to $75,000 donation. Donors must show a U.S. passport, the Boston Globe reports.

The Olympic backdrop is fitting for Romney, who is credited with financially saving the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Host committee members for the events include Barclays bank lobbyist Patrick Durkin, Dan Bricken a managing director at Wells Fargo Securities, Dwight Poler, managing director at Bain Capital, the private equity firm co-founded by Romney; Raj Bhattacharyya, managing director at Deutsche Bank; Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets; Eric Varvel, CEO of Credit Suisse bank; and Gregg Lemkau, a mergers and acquisitions executive at Goldman Sachs.
