WASHINGTON–GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney hits Chicago on Sept. 11, for a dinner and reception at the Lake Forest home of Reeve and Melissa Waud. The price tag ranges from $2,500 for the reception to $25,000 for a private dinner. Hosts are expected to commit to raise $50,000. The maximum contribution is $75,800 per person or $151,600 per couple.

Romney and his wife Ann appeared at the Waud’s Lake Forest home for a fund-raiser last November. Waud is a member of the Illinois Tool Works and Northern Trust Waud family.

The $75,800/$151,600 package includes a perk package called “Romney Victory Founding Partner Benefits,” which is the name of the program that arranges for top level donor briefings and–for the Tampa GOP Convention next week–tickets to sessions, receptions, etc.

The Lake Forest dinner and reception is being billed as the the final fund-raiser in Illinois headlined by Romney.

Romney comes to Chicago after picking up the official Republican Presidential nomination in Tampa next week–and on a day marking the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
