    Donald Trump’s twice-postponed fundraiser at the Bolingbrook Golf Club is now set for Wednesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Tickets for the event range in price from $1,000 to $250,000 per couple. According to the report, the pricier option includes getting named as an event chairman, luncheon with “prime seating,” a photo and attendance at a pre-lunch “VIP roundtable."

    Proceeds will go to the Trump Victory fund, the Republican National Committee, and some state parties. Illinois is not one of them.

    Hosts for the event include Chicago businessman Ron Gidwitz, the Trump Victory fund’s Illinois finance chair and Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar.

    Trump raised $90 million last month, a $10 million increase from July. Nevertheless, that still trails the $143 million pulled in by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee and state parties, the Tribune reports.

    Clinton is scheduled to be in Chicago Thursday for a fundraiser, according to the report. Tickets for that event range from $2,700 per person to $33,400 per table.
