Tickets for the event scheduled for Friday start at $15,000 per couple and go up to $50,000, according to an invitation obtained by the Nevada Independent. 

The invitation says the event will raise money for Win Nevada, a joint fundraising committee authorized by Heller and Tarkanian's campaigns, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

Spokespeople for the NRSC, the NRCC and the White House did not immediately respond to The Hill's requests for comment about the event.

Trump is already set to hold a rally in Las Vegas on Thursday to boost Heller – who is considered the most vulnerable Senate Republican seeking reelection this year – as well as Tarkanian.
