Former President Bill Clinton appeared at a fundraiser in Park City on Thursday to raise money for his wife’s presidential campaign.

Clinton did not make any public appearances but spoke to Democratic donors at the home of the Barry Baker, a former president of USA Networks and venture capitalist, and Amy Baker, who worked for NBC News.

The Deseret News reports that tickets to the event started at $1,000, with guests paying $10,000 or more for “VIP access” or to be a co-host.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports one protester who is a longtime Trump supporter stood outside the event with a sign that read “Political Correctness Equals Political Corruption.”

Following the fundraiser, Clinton was scheduled to attend a closed-door meeting in Salt Lake City about economic issues with developer Kem Gardner, Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and others.

President Bill Clinton is expected to be in Park City on Thursday to appear at a private fundraiser for his wife’s presidential campaign.

The former president is not expected to make any public appearances while he’s in Utah and only stop at the fundraiser, which is being held at a private home.

It’s unclear if Hillary Clinton will make an appearance in Utah this year. She attended a private Park City fundraiser last August but has not yet made a 2016 public appearance in the heavily Republican state where Bernie Sanders won the Democratic presidential caucus.

Clinton’s campaign says it cannot confirm any event details or whether the candidate or her husband would make any public appearances.
