And I agree with you.

I don't care. You can ask for whatever you want and I can decide to attend or not. It's America. Still free on things like this.

To us it is, Lainey. But since I'm going to give money in any event, it doesn't really matter. I think a note of some kind about what the money is being used for might help, if done properly.
