Christie, Jon Bon Jovi, Shaq Give White House Dinner A New Jersey Feel
The Huffington Post table at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner will have a definite New Jersey feel to it.
Post publisher Ariana Huffington has invited Governor Chris Christie, Jon Bon Jovi and Newark native Shaquille O’Neal to attend as her website’s guests according to Women’s Wear Daily.
The dinner will take place on Saturday, April 27 and will be hosted by Conan O’Brien who last hosted in 1995.
Media organizations traditionally invite guests to sit at their tables, making for some interesting company. Last year ABC invited the Republican to attend and he was seated next to actress Sofia Vergara. Kim Kardashian attended as the guest of Fox News Channel.
Among this year’s announced guests: ABC had invited stars from several of their shows including Scandal and Nashville and Nicole Kidman and Olivia Munn the guests of the Daily Beast.
Proceeds from the fund over $100,000 worth of scholarships for high school students.
