The high-profile event is scheduled for the same day as the presumptive presidential nominee's visit to Colorado for the Western Conservative Summit, The Denver Post said Monday.


The newspaper reported that Michael Shanahan, who used to coach the Denver Broncos, is hosting the fundraiser at his home in Denver.

Pete Coors, a veteran beer executive, is also on the host committee, as is Larry Mizel, a major donor in Colorado politics.

The Post said tickets cost at least $10,000 per couple for a lunch at Shanahan’s private residence.

Couples who pay $50,000 get both a photo opportunity and a VIP meeting with Trump, according to an invitation.

The summit’s website says the event will run Friday through Sunday at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

“Join us for stellar conservative speakers, informative breakout sessions, good music, food, fun, exhibitors and more, all to advance faith, family and freedom," it says.

Other scheduled speakers include former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
