From the OrlandoSentinel.com: “It’s Morganritaville: Jimmy Buffett to headline Obama event at Morgan’s”
Next up at the Lake Mary home of celeb-lawyer and Democratic fundraiser John Morgan: Jimmy Buffett, live and in concert, to raise money for the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama.
Morgan is inviting people to a private, 5 p.m. fundraising party at his Lake Mary mansion on Oct. 12 featuring “A Musical Evening with Jimmy Buffett.”
Price of tickets starts at $500 just for the concert; $1,000 for VIP seating; and $5,000 for a meet-and-greet opportunity with the Florida Keys balladeer, Cheeseburger in Paradise rocker and long-time Democratic supporter.
“Remember, it’s five o’clock somewhere. Come get your margaritas, cheeseburgers and paradise at Morganritaville!!” Morgan states in an invitation cover letter.
Proceeds will be split up between the Obama For America committee, the Democratic National Committee, and state Democratic committees in Florida, Ohio and several other “swing states.”
Just in the past year Morgan has hosted fundraising events featuring Obama, former President Bill Clinton and Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
