Jets owner Woody Johnson throwing Trump fundraiser in East Hampton

New, 4 comments

Tickets are $10,000 and $25,000

Yesterday came word that Hillary supporter Jonathan Tisch is throwing a $33,000-per-head fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton at his Bridgehampton home. Not to be outdone, now we learn that Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets, will be fundraising for Donald Trump at his East Hampton home on August 13.

Tickets for Trump will be slightly cheaper, at $10,000 and $25,000. Co-hosts include such financial heavyweights as Howard Lorber, Peter Kalikow and Anthony Scaramucci.

Mr. Johnson paid $13.5M for his house, on Highway Behind the Pond, back in 2005. It boasts 2.3 acres of land and backs on to the Maidstone Club. Back in 2012, someone paid $45M for 2.7 acres across the street from Mr. Johnson—ah, there’s nothing like good old Hamptons real estate appreciation, not that billionaire Johnson is hurting for cash.
