From the LA Times:

A fundraiser President Trump is headlining Tuesday night will take place at the Beverly Park mansion of Shari and Edward Glazer, co-chairman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source familiar with security arrangements for the event.

Donors are contributing up to $250,000 each to attend the dinner, with the funds benefiting Trump's 2020 reelection campaign and various Republican National Committee accounts. The fundraising goal for the event is $5 million.

Glazer, 48, is the son of the late billionaire Malcolm Glazer.

Glazer donated $98,000 to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and $250,000 to his inauguration. But he has also supported Democrats. In 2016, he gave $5,400 to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign on the same day he donated $33,400 to the Republican National Committee.
