“Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!” Beyoncé just wrote in an email to thousands of Obama supporters. Per the email, supporters will be entered into a raffle where they could win a trip to New York and meet Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and President Obama, provided they donate to the President’s campaign today.
The email only says the meeting will take place “in NYC sometime soon,” which means it could be a ticket to an Obama fundraiser the couple is hosting at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club September 18th, for which tickets are regularly $40,000 a head.
