Vice President Kamala Harris is preparing to organize a fundraising event on Martha’s Vineyard, a popular Massachusetts island known for its affluent visitors. The event, which is part of the Biden-Harris re-election campaign, offers a range of ticket prices starting from $50 to $10,000. It is being coordinated by the Biden Victory Fund and will be attended by notable individuals, including a bank executive, a former Obama official, a political consultant, and actor Wendell Pierce.
While dubbed a “grassroots reception,” some are skeptical about the event’s grassroots nature due to its ticket pricing and the influential hosts involved. Specific details about the event, such as the exact timing and venue, have not been revealed. The expenses for the occasion are being covered by a joint fundraising committee authorized by Biden for President, the Democratic National Committee, and several state Democratic parties.
This upcoming event follows Vice President Harris’ previous campaign-related visit to Martha’s Vineyard in August. It is worth mentioning that Harris’ sister, Maya Lakshmi Harris, owns a home on the island. The island’s reputation as a destination for the wealthy has attracted attention and scrutiny from various political circles.
