The New York Times:

According to the campaign, roughly 250 people attended the event, which was expected to bring in at least $2 million.

(...) Among those writing the biggest checks will be the chairmen of the dinner event, where the price of entry was $25,000 to $75,000 per head: Louis Bacon, a hedge fund billionaire and founder of Moore Capital Management, who splits time between New York and London; Karl Peterson, who heads European operations for the Texas Pacific Group, a private equity firm; and Dwight Poler, a managing director in Europe for Bain Capital, Mr. Romney’s former private equity firm.

Co-chairmen included Steven Chasan, another executive from Moore Capital Management, and Eric Varvel, the chief executive of Credit Suisse’s investment bank.

(...) So far Barclays, Britain’s third largest bank, has been at the scandal’s forefront, and the bank’s former chief executive, Robert E. Diamond Jr., withdrew his name from Thursday’s event after he was forced to resign from the bank. Patrick Durkin, a senior lobbyist for Barclays in Washington who has raised more than $1 million for Mr. Romney, remained a co-chairman.
