According to the New York Law Journal:

Dozens of New York lawyers have reached into their pockets to help new President Barack Obama help defray the cost of an inauguration that many think will be, in the words of one, “for the ages.”

Barry H. Berke [of] Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel… personally donated $10,000 and collected $40,000 from others because Obama “has the potential to be a different kind of leader, a transformational leader who goes beyond ordinary politics.”

Patricia Cliff [of] Corcoran Real Estate Group, said she contributed $10,000 because it is “really important to be a part of an unbelievable first in American history.” Not just the election of the first black president but someone who is bringing “a whole new generation into government — it’s a very memorable experience for the whole country,” she said.

John P. “Sean” Coffey, a partner at Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossman, said he had contributed $50,000 because he realized that individuals would have to pick up the slack resulting from Obama’s refusal to accept donations from traditional interest groups.

“I was happy to do my bit for an inauguration that will be for the ages,” he said.
