This is How Much It’ll Cost You to Have Coffee with Ivanka Trump

Want to share a cup of joe with Ivanka Trump? It’ll cost you.

Charitybuzz is auctioning off a coffee date with the business mogul, and the current bid stands at $18,500. That money, which will be donated to The Eric Trump Foundation to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, buys a 30-45 minute meet-and-greet, along with a photo op. Charitybuzz put a price tag of $50,000 as the meeting’s estimated value.

The winner has the option to have their sit down either at Trump Tower in NYC or Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Bidders are warned in advance that Ivanka Trump will not be flying solo on their date, as The United States Secret Service will be in attendance throughout.

Trump’s biography on Charitybuzz does not include any mention of her involvement with her father’s presidential campaign or transitional team. Instead, it discusses her lifestyle brand, the books she’s written and her hobbies, which she lists as: “traveling, cooking and tending her garden with her children.”
