And the donors’ identities may never be known.
Prospective million-dollar donors to the “Opening Day 2017” event — slated for Jan. 21, the day after inauguration, at Washington, D.C.’s Walter E. Washington Convention Center — receive a “private reception and photo opportunity for 16 guests with President Donald J. Trump,” a “multi-day hunting and/or fishing excursion for 4 guests with Donald Trump, Jr. and/or Eric Trump, and team,” as well as tickets to other events and “autographed guitars by an Opening Day 2017 performer.”
Website TMZ.com first published a brochure hyping the happening. The brochure says that “all net proceeds from the Opening Day event will be donated to conservation charities,” but it does not name the charities or detail how net proceeds will be calculated.

For just $1 million, you can kill animals with Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump
Trump's sons are bidding themselves off now, after they tried to auction off their sister
For just $1 million, you can go hunting with the brothers grim, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump.An invitation obtained by TMZ for an “Opening Day” party hosted by the Trump brothers promoted various packages offered to the VIP guests. One package, going for $1 million, included the chance to join Donald Jr. and Eric Trump on a “multi-day hunting and/or fishing excursion.”
Eric Trump has come under fire recently because he pulled a separate auction — which included a coffee date with sister Ivanka Trump — from a charity event after complaints surfaced that the donation could lead to conflicts of interests. Instead of changing the prize for the auction, or just donating the asking price to the charity recipient, St. Jude’s Hospital, Eric Trump simply removed the bidding from his website.
The invitation for the “Opening Day” party, scheduled the day after the inauguration, claimed that all net proceeds from the event will be donated to conservation charities.
