President Donald Trump won’t be at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, but if you sign a contract on a Delray Beach condo, you might be.
Senada Adzem, the real estate broker handling sales at The Metropolitan condo development, is dangling a ticket to the dinner to anyone who signs a contract in the next few days. She says the developer will throw in airfare and a hotel room in Washington, too.
Tickets go for about $600 apiece, Adzem said, but the annual dinner has been sold out for months.
“This is a very special, very exclusive event,” Adzem said. “You could not buy a ticket at this point.”
Adzem is marketing units at The Metropolitan at 33 SE 3rd Ave. in Delray. The new building includes 48 units priced at $475,000 to $1.2 million.
Adzem plans to attend the event herself, and she said she scored six tickets thanks to her media connections.
“I do a lot of work with CNBC and Bloomberg,” Adzem said.
The White House Correspondents’ Association is a nonprofit that uses proceeds from its annual dinner to fund journalism scholarships.
Trump attended the event in 2011, and former President Barack Obama spent a full five minutes mocking Trump’s efforts to question Obama’s citizenship.
