Those who pay $25,000 receive a photo and can attend the reception and dinner, while couples paying $100,000 become members of the host committee and also get a Republican National Committee Regent membership, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Last week, Trump’s campaign agreed to a fundraising deal with the RNC as the two sides continue to seek party unity ahead of a tough general election fight.

The deal, referred to as a joint fundraising agreement, will allow Trump and the party to hold events together and split the proceeds.

At the L.A. fundraiser, the first $2,700 raised will go to Trump’s primary campaign, and the second $2,700 will go to his general election campaign, the LA Times reports.

Trump and the RNC hosted thier first joint fundraiser in Albuquerque, N.M., on Tuesday, charging each guest $10,000.

The presumptive Republican nominee told The Associated Press Tuesday he is only holding fundraisers because the party wants him to.

“The RNC really wanted to do it, and I want to show good spirit,” Trump said. “Because I was very happy to continue to go along the way I was.”

Trump has previously self-funded his campaign through personal loans. The shift to fundraising comes as political experts expect an expensive general election costing about $1 billion.
