Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour will host a fundraiser in Manhattan with Vice President Kamala Harris, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.
The event is part of a rollout of fundraising appearances by Harris as the re-election campaign for her and President Joe Biden ramps up. Tickets for the May 30 fundraiser, which organizers plan for 50 to 75 people, start at $10,000.
The appearance suggests Harris will play a more significant role in campaign fundraising as both she and Biden begin courting donors for their 2024 bids. Biden traveled to New York City earlier this month for two fundraisers there.
Wintour’s event will be co-hosted and take place at the home of Lauren Santo Domingo, co-founder of online fashion retailer Moda Operandi, according to a memo sent by the Democratic National Committee. Donors can also purchase $50,000 “host” level tickets or $100,000 “seat” tickets to the event.
On May 24, second man Doug Emhoff will be a guest at a fundraiser held at the home of fashion designer Kay Unger and her partner David Rubin. The dinner will be a more intimate event limited to 20 people. The suggested ticket price is $10,000.
The Gramercy Park townhouse in Santo Domingo, which is also the artistic director of Tiffany & Co.’s home collection, has reportedly been valued at $18.5 million.
Unger’s home has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine. A 2007 rendering of the 4,300-square-foot Soho loft describes a “polished fresco fireplace that stretches up to meet the 15-foot ceiling” and “a walk-in pantry-and-china cabinet.”
