Attendees must shell out an additional $1,700–making the total price tag $2,700–to take a photo with the Democratic presidential candidate and her $600 haircut, meaning that the selfie will cost interested customers more than the average American makes from a month’s work.
According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the average yearly income of person in the United States as of 2013 was $28,155, or $2346.25 monthly–approximately $350 less than the ticket price of a picture with Clinton.
Of course, Hillary enthusiasts are encouraged to spend more. Those in attendance who raise $10,000 for the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign will be named co-hosts of the event, while those who net $27,000 will be promoted to hosts.
As such, "hosts" must prepare to raise just under the average yearly income of a U.S. citizen.
The fundraiser, which will take place during the Clintons’ Hamptons vacation, is one of three Clinton campaign events at the pricey destination next month.
On Aug. 22, Clinton will appear at the home of businessman Artie Rabin and his wife Selma in Water Mill for a fundraiser. And, a "pancake breakfast with Hillary" will be held at the East Hampton estate of donors Susan and Alan Patricof on Aug. 30, preceding the event at the Burch home. The cost of those events is unclear.
