Pete Buttigieg will appear at his first big New York fundraiser, Page Six has learned, on Thursday night.
The event is being hosted by Jujamcyn Theaters big Jordan Roth and husband Richie Jackson.
On Wednesday night, Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Glezman, attended the opening of the hotly anticipated Broadway musical “Hadestown,” along with VIPs including Josh Groban. (The show’s playing at Jujamcyn’s famed Walter Kerr Theatre, where Bruce Spingsteen had his blockbuster Broadway run.)
Buttigieg has been on a fundraising roll with Democratic donors, raking in $7 million by the end of March.
A source said of the Roth-hosted fundraiser, “The event sold out very quickly. With each speech and each article [on Buttigieg], more people were calling to get in. They’re now having to take furniture out of their living room, as it’s grown to triple the capacity they were first aiming for.”
The South Bend, Ind., mayor raised $1 million from supporters within four hours of announcing his official bid for president.
Also spotted at the “Hadestown” opening on Wednesday night were Joel Grey and Ben Vereen. An after-party was thrown at Gustavino’s.
