Trump headlining Republican fundraiser in Bolingbrook

By Adam Chapelle, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO) Donald Trump will be in town next month for a high-dollar fundraiser in suburban Bolingbrook. The cost for the September 12th event will range from $1,000 per person to $250,000 per couple. 

Proceeds will go to Trump Victory, which will share the incoming funds with the Republican National Committee and some state parties. The host list is far from star-studded, with RNC chair Reince Preibus being the main headliner. Local hosts include businessman Ron Gidwitz and Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar.

The Bolingbrook event comes after Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, canceled a scheduled Chicago fundraising dinner for the Republican presidential ticket and the RNC. It’s Trump’s first public event in the Chicago area since his March 11 rally at the UIC Pavilion was canceled amid security concerns.
