A CLASSY PARTY
The 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee reveals it raised $106,715,308.29 for the 2017 inauguration, and duly reported this to the Federal Election Commission. The events in January proved to be among “the most accessible and affordable inaugurations for the public in recent history,” the commission says.
Among those events: A free opening concert, free parade tickets, free admission to the Armed Services Inaugural Ball and tickets priced at $50 for the other official galas. The committee also gave broadcasters complete access and coverage to freely air the inaugural balls worldwide.
Now that the hubbub is over, the committee will begin the process of donating “excess monies raised” to charity.
