New York - Billed as a charity night gala at the home of a wealthy NYC philanthropisst the fundraiser is expected to raise million$ for Obama's Presidential Library & Museum gaff.
It's taking place at Loida Nicolas-Lewis' 834 Fifth Avenue penthouse - just four floors away from Ruper Murdoch's new $44m pad.
Described as a white-glove tony apartment building the storied mansion faces Central Park close to East 64th Street, opposite the Zoo's newly refurbished Reptile House.
Reporters covering tonight's engagement reckon the newspaper magnate and his British former CEO Rebekah Brooks are high up on the evening's guessed-list.
"They're likely to be smuggled in anonymously," a QM-NewsCorpse stringer suggested, "maybe via the apartment building's legendary dumb waiter."
The 6ft square food hoist was last used in secret service when Murdoch initially viewed his palatial new abode.
Commenting on the revelations someone from New York Toast magazine - a Murdoch-owned organ - said, "The whole story's absolute crap."
