Photos From Jay-Z & Beyonce's Fundraiser For Obama...And Towers Of Gold Champagne
Official photos won't be released from the President Obama fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z & Beyonce at the 40/40 Club last night. But a few twitpics have leaked. Pics inside...
At last night's $40,000/ticket fundraiser, which had 40 people and raised $4 Million for the President's campaign, Beyonce rocked a red dress and soft curls for the big night. And both she and her hubby snapped a few pics with the wealthy folks who dished out 40 G's:
And what perks did the supporters get once they entered the 40/40 Club? A 350-champagne-bottles-high tower of gold champagne. With each bottle costing $800. The NY Post reports:
Nix the flags and the podium. Cue the opulent 18-foot tower of gold-bottled French champagne.
When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.
The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.
“It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”
