The $5,000-a-person breakfast a week from Wednesday will raise money for Trump for America, a 501 (C) (4) group funding the Republican’s transition effort, Politico said Monday.


Politico noted key guests include Steven Mnuchin, who is on Trump’s shortlist for Treasury secretary, and Wilbur Ross, a top candidate for Commerce secretary.

Ray Washburne, who leads the Trump transition’s Commerce landing team, and Bill Hagerty, who heads the presidential appointments team outside of Washington, D.C., are also expected to attend.

Brian Ballard, Florida’s top GOP fundraiser, is also a likely audience member at the event.
