Big Bucks, Big Parties

A few more official RNC events have come to light over the past few days.

The New York Times is reporting today that Wall Street is rolling out the red carpet for the Republican Convention. Who woulda thunk it?? The article by Michael Slackman contains a good deal of information about the financial connections between big business and the Republicans. And, of course, about the festivities.

"There are so many parties going on you have to pick and choose the location and date rather early to try to lessen the competition," said Richard Hunt, a spokesman for the Securities Industry Association, a 600-member trade group. "Competition will be great every hour of every day."

For New Yorkers who might want to observe a few of these parties, the Times reports that a "can't miss event" on the first night of the Convention will be held at the Rainbow Room. "[Rep.] Michael Oxley and members of the Financial Services Committee are to be "honored guests" at the Rainbow Room, said Pamela Sederholm, a Washington-area public relations consultant who said she is helping organize the party. An investment industry organizer said that the invitations called for sponsors to contribute $25,000 to $100,000 for the program, which will include dancing to midnight to big band music."

Also, it seems the Times itself has got a few events planned for the Republicans. According to NYC Indymedia, "the New York City Host Committee 2004 and CEO Harris, along with the New York Times, announced in Times Square a program to provide theater tickets and shopping discounts to Convention visitors." A rather shameless promotion, as the Times was hyping an RNC trip to Broadway as a news story a few weeks ago.
