DETROIT (WWJ) – President Barack Obama is coming to the ‘Motor City’ next week for a 1-million dollar pizza party fundraiser hosted by Denise Ilitch, the daughter of Little Caesar’s founders Mike and Marian Ilitch.
And for $10,000, you can get dinner and candid photo with the President. A $40,000 ticket nets you a formal photo.
We asked metro Detroiters, like Pam Horowitz of Farmington Hills, if she would shell out that kind of money.
“There is no way that I would do that, I mean I like the president, I’m not against him. That’s a huge amount of money, no, no even if I had a huge amount of money,” said Horowitz.
This man says he wouldn’t pay either.
“It would more be a ‘showing off’ thing, otherwise, I think it’s a waste of money,” he said.
Keith Combs of Farmington Hills says, “No way, it’s too much for pizza and paper plates … silver plates? That’s at least better than paper plates.”
And many say campaigns simply cost too much.
