Do you have $250,000 lying around? If so, it might get you a table at President Trump’s Republican National Committee fundraiser in New York City this evening at Le Cirque, reports Bloomberg.

It’ll only cost you and your significant other that if you want to dine directly with the president, though. That $250,000 per couple price tag gets you a “private roundtable” with Trump.

For a highly discounted $100,000 per couple, you’ll get “VIP access,” which may or may not get you anywhere near Trump.

Per Bloomberg, the minimum “donation” is $35,000, and 150 people are going to attend—including Steve Wynn, he of the Las Vegas casino fortune; and John Catsimatidis, a New York billionaire. The latter said, “Don’t forget, under Obama, the business people and the banks were the enemies of Washington. … The one thing Donald Trump has done is the business people and banks are no longer the enemies, and the business people feel better and they are making investments.”

Once a high society hangout, Le Cirque has suffered the inequities of soaring New York real estate prices and the bankruptcy of its co-owner in March.
