Former President Donald J. Trump plans to be in Greenville, South Carolina, on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024, for a campaign fund-raising event, with a $6,600-per-person reception, according to information sent to supporters by the Trump Save America Joint Fundraising Committee.

There also will be a Write/Raise photo opportunity with Trump and a VIP reception for $23,200.

The event location wasn’t disclosed. Trump's appearance would come just before South Carolina's Republican presidential primary on Feb. 24.

Trump Save America JFC is a joint fund-raising committee on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President 2024, Inc. and Save America.

Committee officials say joint fundraising proceeds will be allocated 90 percent to Donald J. Trump for President 2024, Inc. (2024 primary election), 10 percent to Save America, and any contribution exceeding the legal amount that may be contributed to either of the committees will be allocated to Donald J. Trump for President 2024, Inc. (2024 general election).

Those inviting supporters to the Greenville event included Gov. Henry McMaster and his wife, Peggy; Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott; Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette; Sloan and Wallace Cheves; and former University of South Carolina head football coach Lou Holtz.

In announcing the Greenville invitation, Meredith O’Rourke, finance director of the Trump Save America JFC, wrote, “After President Trump’s victory in Iowa, victory in New Hampshire, and the endorsement of former presidential candidates Governor Ron DeSantis, Governor Doug Burgum, Senator Tim Scott, and Vivek Ramaswamy it’s time for us to unite as a party and defeat Joe Biden. Please join us and help us Make America Great Again this November!”

Trump and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley are fighting for the Republican presidential nomination to compete against President Biden, a Democrat, in November.
