Al Sharpton Granting “Preacher Status” To Birthday Party Guests Who Pay $25,000 Admission
According to Page Six reports:
Festivities are kicking off for Rev. Al Sharpton’s 60th birthday at the Four Seasons restaurant Wednesday night.
But his “Party for a Cause” is also helping raise money for his National Action Network.
We’re told $1,500 gets you in as a “medallion” committee member, $2,500 buys “tracksuit” status, and $25,000 “preacher status.”
Those who’ve made preacher include BET chief executive Debra Lee, Ron Perelman and Essence Communications CEO Michelle Ebanks.
MSNBC’s Phil Griffin, Aretha Franklin, Spike Lee, Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Charles Rangel are also expected. Sharpton will host an educational summit at NYU Oct. 1 and 2, and a gospel concert with Yolanda Adams and Marvin Sapp on Oct. 2.
Happy Birthday to Permed Up Al. And major props to his 36-year-old boo thang for showing love to an old wrinkly prune juice drinker.
