Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, will attend a sold-out campaign fund-raiser Wednesday night at Stone street Farm on Old Frankfort Pike in Fayette County.

The private fund-raiser will be hosted by the family of the late farm owner, Jess Jackson; coal executive Joe Craft; and Kelly Knight, a Republican fund-raiser.

Knight and Craft are finance chairs of Romney's campaign in Kentucky.

Tickets were $1,000. A photo with Ann Romney is $2,500, and the cost for a private dinner with Romney is $50,000.

Knight said 24 tickets have been sold for the dinner.

"We're honored and humbled to have her here," Knight said, adding that Ann Romney would be in Lexington only for the fund-raiser.
