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.”

I love what Jay Z and Beyonce

I love what Jay Z and Beyonce are doing for the Obama campaign. Beyonce looks like she is in AWE over the president. Can you blame her? He is an incredibile man. I think she secretly has a crush on him.

I have never ever seen Bey

I have never ever seen Bey smile so hard as she did on these pics w/ Obama. I wonder does she have a crush on him. Well she does like those older men. She looked too cute on these pics cheesing so hard that it looked like it hurt. Good cause for these 2 even though it looked a lil ghetto.

gaudy and very nouveau rich??

gaudy and very nouveau rich?? please. Even though I'm not rich, I have some sense of what is apropos and trust, in 40/40, that makes perfect sense. Besides, Jay-Z and Beyonce have never acted what ppl consider to be nouveau rich...I appreciate the fundraising. Excellent cause!

I do question the taste level

I do question the taste level of the Ace of Spades champagne tower. Several of my friends work for Jeffrey Beers' design firm here in NYC so I'm really familiar with what goes on inside his office. I do NOT think this tower was Jeffrey's idea. It's just not is style. It's gaudy and very nouveau riche. The idea definitely came straight from the Carters.

I love them, and i think if

I love them, and i think if they really didn't care about others, or in some way gave back to ppl, im just saying i dont think the Obama's would rock with them like that lol but ppl can keep hating because every time the paps take a picture of them, its nothing but happy/postive moments, if i googled half of the ppl on here who hate, i bet i'd find nothing but FB pics, and mug shots!! Nothing HALF as successful as these two

Jay-Z, is a fool, doesn't he

Jay-Z, is a fool, doesn't he get it? A Spade drinks a champagne called "Spade?" Might as well put Amos and Andy on the bottle.

Okay theybf.com please make your lie up is it 4 million or 40 million dollars that they helped rasied last night. Because 3 post down you said it was 4 million now this post its 40 million. That's how people get Gossip going and Not true information. How about trying to slow down and stop trying to win for each exclusive story and just gather up solid info and/or correct spelling on articles. Thanks..

$40 Mil does not sound right.

$40 Mil does not sound right. They made $1.6MM from tickets ($40,000 X 40 people). Was there a silent auction or something? Did Jay Z and Beyonce kick in the remaining $38.4 MM? That club is not that big but in order for them to make $40MM on tickets alone they would have had to sell them to 1,000 people (not 40).

I'm sure they did other fundraisers and some people probably gave more than $40,000 must you know every detail how much did you contribute.

At least this time Jay and

At least this time Jay and Bey are putting their celebrity to good use. Bey looks great in the photo, although I question wearing a red dress to a Democratic fundraiser. They probably haven't covered this chapter in her GED American Government classes yet, but red is the color of the GOP. Blue is the color for Democrats. And for someone who loves the color blue so much that she decided to give the name to her daughter, this would have been the perfect event to rock it.
