2016 was a great year for President-elect Donald Trump, and he plans to end it with a bang. Hundreds of tickets have been sold for his lavish party at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s luxurious private resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The annual New Year’s Eve bash planned for Saturday night will feature not only Trump, but his family as well.
The grand event on Saturday will host a cocktail hour in the resort’s living room and patio area, followed by an extravagant dinner and dancing until 1 a.m. in its magnificent ballroom. The band Party on the Moon will perform live music as well.
According to incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer, the $500 a piece tickets “sold out” with more than 800 people scheduled to attend, including close friends actor Sylvester Stallone and music producer Quincy Jones.
Of course, left-leaning critics are claiming the pricey tickets are a conflict of interest as a way to “gain access” to the president-elect. “The transition is not concerned about the appearance of a conflict,” said incoming White House Director of Strategic Communications Hope Hicks “This is an annual celebratory event at the private club, like others that have continued to occur since the election. Additionally, the president cannot and does not have a conflict.”
“We’re excited, we’re honored. We’ve done it for the past two years, so this year feels a little different with [Trump’s] new position,” Steve Levine of Jose Graterol Designs told The Palm Beach Post about the annual event at Mar-a-Lago. “It will be elegant and sophisticated, unique. We never repeat a party, so it’s always different.”
