Bill Clinton's 60th Birthday 'Benefit' Blowout! (grifter details)
Washington Compost ^ | September 28 2006 | Dan Balz

Posted on 09/28/2006 7:03:43 AM PDT by gopwinsin04

Baby boomer and former president Bill Clinton is laying plans to celebrate his 60th birthday in grand style with a charitable fundraising extravaganza in New York late next month that will include an invitation-only concert by the Rolling Stones and contributor packages that run to $500,000.00 and higher.

Clinton's daughter, Chelsea is serving as co-host of the three-day party. She will host a Saturday brunch on a weekend that also features a golf tournament at the Bayonne (N.J.) Golf Club, multiple receptions and a dinner at the American Museum of Natural History with the former president, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Chelsea.

The 2,100 invitations began arriving this week. Weekend packages start at $60,000.00 (Hint: $1,000 for every year of Clinton's age). Next is the "Vice Chairman Package," for those who contribute $100,000.00 or raise $250,000.00

Those who pledge $500,000.00 or more will receive the "Birthday Chair Package," which includes the "Backstage Pass" dinner and photo with Clinton and platinum seating at the Saturday dinner and the Stones concert.

The Rolling Stones will perform at the Beacon Theater, an art deco landmark on upper Broadway that seats about 3,000 people.

According to the invitation, the concert will be taped for an upcoming Martin Scorsese movie about the band.

Clinton turned 60 in August but organizers delayed the birthday fundraising event until late October to avoid any complaints from other Democrats that solicitation of money for the former president's foundation would soak up money that could otherwise be used to try to win back the House and Senate in November.

The proceeds will go to the William J. Clinton Foundation, the umbrella organization that oversees the Clinton HIV-AIDS initiative, the Clinton Global Initiative and several other programs launched by the former president since he left office almost six years ago.

Former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe is listed as the co-host with Chelsea Clinton.

I wonder what that entails... Do they get to sit on Bill's lap ?

Clinton...you have to just love the idiots who worship him as their lord and savior to the point where they think its a great deal for them to come, give him hundreds of thousands of dollars to the point where he gets millions in the end and at the end of the day you have had nothing to speak of other than dinner.

Sick.

As long as people will pay attention to him.

And the Washington Compost, for one, is always a willing and enthusiastic audience.

Yecchhh!

I love it. The Clintons, white trash Arkansas Medicis, will be sucking the money and oxygen out of the Democrats for the next decade.

All Clintons, all the time.

GWB's 60th was in July and it came and went without much notice. Yet another sign of the great difference in character between these 2 presidents. Mrs Bush turns 60 on Nov 4. I suspect they won't be having any grand, lavish, pretentious galas for her either.

Something tells me that Chris Wallace's invitation will be lost in the mail.

Can you believe the gall of these people???

You would think he is "KING" or something...I do hope with all my might the people of NY vote her OUT of office, she looses the POTUS campaign so we can send them OFF to their own country where they can live like the idiots they are.

The whole thing is ME ME ME...Do we REALLY want another president named klinton?????

The rest of the former Presidents have their birthdays, and do things low keyed, in fact its usually the next day when you hear that Ford, Peanut head, Bush 1 have had a birthday....

If he really cared he'd do it in November.

The fact that it's late Oct. means the money is being put togther now.

So this is, on it's face, a lie.

I actually prefer the drain on Dem coffers to occur two weeks before the election. Amazingly, Clinton does too.

Slick or "Sick" Willie has managed to reach or retch 60 thru the ability to dodge a whole lot of dirty deals he has perpetrated against his fellow citizens and yet, still loves to act the martyr. Good God, is there no depths this guy can attain.

Sure they will. He's spent more time celebrating his 60th birthday than he did hunting for bin Laden.
