Melania Trump is set to host a fundraiser for the Log Cabin Republicans next month, marking her second engagement with the group representing LGBTQ conservatives this year. The event will take place on July 8 at Trump Tower in New York City, according to confirmations from the Log Cabin Republicans. The funds raised from this event will support the organization’s efforts in backing the presidential ticket and down-ballot Republicans in the upcoming November elections.

This announcement highlights a rare instance of engagement in the current campaign trail for the former first lady, who has largely maintained a low profile during her husband’s third bid for the White House. The last high-profile event Melania Trump hosted for the Log Cabin Republicans was in April at Mar-a-Lago, her Palm Beach residence.

Politico was the first to report on Melania Trump's upcoming fundraiser. The former first lady has made only a few appearances on the campaign trail. She was seen casting her ballot alongside former President Donald Trump in March during the Florida primary and attended his campaign launch in 2022. When asked on primary day if she would accompany her husband during his campaign, she responded with a cryptic “Stay tuned.”

Melania Trump’s involvement has been limited, especially during Donald Trump’s legal battles. She was notably absent during his trial in New York City, where he was found guilty on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to a hush money scheme during the 2016 campaign. “She’s fine, but I think it’s very hard for her,” Donald Trump said of his wife during a Fox News interview after his conviction.

Despite her limited public appearances, Melania Trump has shown support in other ways. In April, she attended a fundraiser for her husband at the South Florida home of investor John Paulson. Additionally, she joined a meeting at Mar-a-Lago in March with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and the former president.

The upcoming fundraiser at Trump Tower is expected to draw significant attention and contributions. Attendees are being asked to contribute up to $100,000, with proceeds going to the Log Cabin Republicans' “Road to Victory” program. This initiative aims to turn out voters for Donald Trump and other Republican candidates in the 2024 elections.

The event will be co-hosted by notable figures such as Richard Grenell, former acting director of national intelligence during the Trump administration, along with Bryan Eure, Bill White, and Nazee and Joseph Moinian. Investor Hannah Buchan will host a reception following the Melania Trump event, further underscoring the high-profile nature of the fundraiser.

The Log Cabin Republicans, known as the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated to representing LGBTQ conservatives and allies, expressed excitement over Melania Trump’s continued support. Her involvement is seen as a significant endorsement, adding weight to the organization’s efforts in the current political landscape.
