Mike Pence To Hold Secret Fundraiser At Gay-Owned Private Club in Aspen, CO

The Aspen Times reports:

Monday’s $35,000-a-couple fundraiser starring Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to take place at a private club in Aspen owned by two gay men, sources said Friday.

The Caribou Club in Aspen’s downtown core is set to host the VIP reception with Pence, according to sources who declined to be named. Billy Stolz, one of the owners of the club, did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Bob Jenkins, vice chair of Pitkin County Republicans, said Friday that he expects about 25 couples to attend the $35,000-per-couple VIP reception with Pence starting at 5 p.m. on Monday.

The fundraiser’s location was to be kept a secret and only became public after the club’s chef was arrested for domestic violence and told the judge that he needed to be freed on bail because he had to cook for the vice president.

Bill Koch, founder of the holding company the Oxbow Group, occasionally dines with his wife, Bridget. His brother David Koch, executive vice president and board member of Koch Industries, shows up three or four times a year.

The owner’s of the Caribou Club, <–[Yelp] Richard Edwards and Billy Stoltz  could not be reached for comment.
