President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden hosted the administration’s first state dinner at the White House on Thursday, honoring French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.
The swanky gathering featured more than 300 attendees, including administration officials, politicos, celebrities, fashion icons, and Republican lawmakers. According to a Fox News Digital review of the guest list and campaign finance records, several top-dollar Biden donors also scored invites to the posh event.
The black-tie gathering is a coveted ticket among the rich and powerful who look to mingle with power brokers. The event’s menu included a lavish selection of desserts and seafood, such as butter-poached Maine lobster, beef with shallot marmalade, orange chiffon cake, roasted creme fraiche ice cream and caviar.
Among the major Biden donors in attendance was Alex Soros, deputy chair of the Open Society Foundations (OSF) and son of billionaire megadonor George Soros, who contributed more than $700,000 to the Biden Victory Fund during the 2020 elections. Sarah Margon, OSF’s foreign policy director, joined him at the dinner. Margon is Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, though her appointment remains in limbo since she caught flak for her past tweets about Israel.
