As Terrie pointed out, it's very common here. It's not a formal event and there's no required huge donation amount. If we were doing a sit-down $1,000 a plate dinner, the invitations would have been more formal. As it is, we're donating all the expenses to the campaign and are on a tight budget.

you know we Yanks are such a gauche, plebeian lot

And we Europeans know that American society thumbs tested invitation cards, just as they did in Europe. They probably still do, but I don't move in those circles.
