Hillary Clinton understands the value of family. And that value is $2,700, including a photo.

So explains an email blast from Michelle Kraus, a “political blogger, crisis consultant and tech exec” who is co-hosting a “Silicon Valley Celebration: with candidate Clinton early next month. For just $2,700, families can meet Hillary for a brief photo op. If you can do without the photo, the price is just $1,000.

In another of her trademark very specific definitions of family, Team Clinton defines a “family” as one adult and a maximum of two children. If for some unimaginable reason your family happens to include two adults, you’ll need to pony up an additional $500.

The event is to be held at the home of Anne, Esther, Janet and (YouTube CEO)  Susan Wojcicki, but Kraus says she is also a host which, the email explains, means she has promised to raise at least $27,000 for Clinton.

Kraus’ has also written several Huffington posts about Clinton’s campaign, none of which appear to mention her impressive financial contribution to Hillary ‘16.

Here’s the full email. Grab your check-writing pen and get ready for your close up, Silicon Valley!
