SHREVEPORT, LA (KTAL) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be in Shreveport for a fund-raising event on Friday, March 23, just one day before Louisiana's primary election.
Hosts of the event, which will be held at Shreveport's Petroleum Club, are Paul Dickson and U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-LA 5th District).
There are two levels of attendance at the event. Those wishing to attend the VIP Photo Reception and get their photos taken with the candidate may do so for $2,500 per person or $5,000 per couple. Those finding the photo op a little pricey can attend the general reception for $1,000 per person or $2,000 per couple.
Contributions are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes, however. Also, contributions by corporations, foreign nationals (non-green card holders), labor unions, federal government contractors and minors under the age of 18 are prohibited
