I just received an invitation—to sign up—for tickets to attend the Virginia Inaugural Ball, featuring Gov. Tim Kaine, Sen. Jim Webb, and Sen.-elect Mark Warner. General admission tickets, which cost $200, are already sold out, but if I donate $10,000, I'll receive four tickets to the Blue Dominion Reception and six tickets to the Inaugural Ball. Don't think I'll be attending either.
But a slew of celebrities are sure to party with the prez. The Presidential Inaugural Committee today released its contributors list, which allows users to view, sort, and search real-time information on all donors who've contributed over $200 to the 2009 PIC. The committee says it doesn't accept individual contributions in excess of $50,000.
Some of the celebrities who donated $50,000 individually include: Jamie Foxx, Halle Berry, Ron Howard, Samuel Jackson, Sharon Stone, and Robert Zemeckis.
