Romney expected to raise $600K at Trump fundraiser

Ann Romney turned 63 yesterday, but her birthday continues today and in grand fashion.

Donald Trump will host a luncheon in New York City that's expected to rake in roughly $600,000.

The impending Manhattan event has proved so financially successful, says Trump spokesman Michael Cohen, that the Romney campaign asked Trump to host a similar fundraiser when Romney secures the Republican presidential nomination. According to Cohen, tickets to that event would sell for $50,000 and 50 donors have already expressed interest in attending.

Fun factoid?

The star of "Cake Boss", Buddy Valastro, custom-designed the cake for Ann. Prediction: The phrase "let them eat cake" will never, ever cross Ann's lips.
