WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Grammy-winning artist Beyonce Knowles is reaching out to Democratic supporters to get them to donate money to President Barack Obama’s campaign.
In the email, the pop superstar is calling on supporters to donate $5 or more in a chance to win tickets to the fundraiser Jay-Z and Beyonce will throw for Obama at the 40/40 club in New York next week.
“I usually don’t email you — but I have an amazing invitation I have to share,” the Beyonce email states. “Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!”
Knowles calls it an “opportunity you don’t want to miss.”
The fundraiser will cost $40,000 to attend.
