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.
