2 Dallas Businessmen, Trump Sons Behind Nonprofit Auctioning off Access to President-Elect
The Dallas Morning News reports that a new nonprofit led by two Dallas businessmen and two of Donald Trump’s sons is offering access to the next president on inauguration weekend in exchange for big money donations to unnamed charities, according to a report from the Center for Public Integrity.
Paperwork filed for the Opening Day Foundation lists Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump as directors along with Dallas hedge fund manager Gentry Beach and Tom Hicks Jr., the eldest son of Dallas billionaire Tom Hicks. The foundation is said to be organizing a Jan. 21 event called “Opening Day 2017” at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., the center reported.
A brochure for the event, obtained by TMZ.com, indicates that ticket packages begin at $25,000. The priciest package, the $1 million “Bald Eagle,” will yield a private reception and photo opportunity for 16 guests with President-elect Donald Trump, four autographed guitars by an Opening Day performer and a multiday hunting or fishing excursion for four guests with Trump’s adult sons, according to the brochure.
