JACKSON HOLE, Wyo., July 12 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney's next fundraising stop is Jackson Hole, Wyo., for an event hosted by former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Guests who donate $30,000 each -- $60,000 per couple -- will get to dine with Cheney and his wife Lynn in their Jackson Hole home, the invitation says. The main event will be held at the Teton Pines Country Club, with the minimum donation set at $2,500.Planners say they originally anticipated 50 guests, but the list now stretches to 230.

The Thursday evening event is also hosted by Dick Scarlett, chairman and chief executive officer of United Bancorporation, along with his wife Maggie Scarlett.

The presumptive Republican presidential candidate has not previously appeared in public with Cheney, ABC News reported.

Fundraising numbers for the Romney campaign beat out the Obama campaign for the second month in a row in June, raising a $106 million to Obama's $71 million.
