VIP packages for glitzy Clinton Foundation gala cost $100K

While the Clinton Foundation was believed to be on the down low after the 2016 election, it’s back, with a bang.

The philanthropic organization is throwing a glitzy gala featuring Shaggy (whose hits include “It Wasn’t Me”) and Sting (frontman for The Police).

Fox News reported last year that the Clinton Global Initiative — a branch of the foundation which had hosted an annual conference of world leaders and influencers — was laying off 22 employees, leading many to believe that the whole Clinton Foundation was kaput.

But an invitation — first reported by Axios — just went out to Clinton megadonors from Hillary, Bill and Chelsea urging supporters to join a May 24 dinner, with tables going for up to $100,000.

Tickets start at $2,500, but the privileged $100K packages include a “premium table of 10” along with . . . we can hardly contain our excitement . . . “invitations to the Clinton Foundation Annual Briefing.”

To be fair, the foundation has made key contributions to the global fight against HIV/AIDS and malaria, securing low-cost drugs for Africa, and leading the charge for global women’s rights.

However, the foundation was also accused of donating to mostly liberal causes, and existing primarily to boost the prestige of the Clintons.

But — before you decide against that $100K table — this could turn into an entertaining event: Shaggy, who calls himself Mr. Bombastic, and Sting recorded a reggae album together, with tracks including “Don’t Make Me Wait” and “Crooked Tree,” which sounds rather similar to President Trump’s moniker for Hillary.

The only thing missing is a keynote from the equally bombastic anti-Trump-tweeting Clinton aide Philippe Reines.
