Jay-Z & Beyonce Help Raise $4 Million For Obama In NYC


Beyoncé and Jay-Z showed their support for President Obama by raising $4 million for his re-election campaign at an exclusive fundraising event last night in New York City at the 40/40 Club.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, attendees shelled out $40,000 a pop to mingle with the President and the superstar couple at Jay-Z’s “40/40″ club. The glitzy event featured a tower of 350 Armand de Brignac champagne bottles.
“I can’t tell you how proud we are to host tonight’s event with President Obama,” said Beyoncé, who wore a red cocktail dress. “We believe in his vision.”
A grateful Obama thanked the Carters for their support. “To Jay and Bey, thank you so much for your friendship,” he said, while joking, “Michelle, Sasha and Malia are mad at me because they aren’t here.”
The commander-in-chief also saluted the Roc Nation boss. “We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard but it’s OK,” he said.
