The event will take place in Bloomberg's home in New York Sept. 20. Tickets for the event start at $1,000 — raising $10,000 gets a donor billing as an event "chair."  

Bloomberg and Reid are a bit of an odd pair, given that Reid recently broke with President Obama on his support for a planned Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero in New York. Reid became the most prominent Democrat to say the project should be built somewhere else. 

Bloomberg is one of the project's strongest defenders and has assailed opponents of the plan. Earlier this month, he said those who spoke out against the project should be "ashamed."
