Therefore, this year’s entry fee is close to $50,000 which will cost some celebrities a sizable portion of their earnings. But the multi-millionaire event also serves a charitable purpose in addition to being a celebrity gathering. And the funds from the event will benefit the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
