Jen Wilke really wants to make herself a famous model, and wants random people to help her make it happen. The model, who has posed for magazines like Playboy, Maxim and FHM, recently set up a GoFundMe page and asked fans for $10,000 that she said would allow her to attend Maxim Hot 100 Party.
According to Wilke, she’d had “some major success” lately and even scored herself a VIP invite to the bash, which she believed would boost her career. “I am getting all of the right kind of attention, and I have grown my fan base to encompass more than 2 million users on Facebook alone,” she said.
“The offers that I am getting for photo-shoots, castings, and key social events are what I have always dreamed of, and I am still worrying about covering basic expenses like clothing, travel, and lodging,” the 31-year-old Texan explained before asking fans to help her pay for everything she needed for the party.
“I am turning to you for help raising $(amount). These funds will cover my expenses for the Maxim Hot 100 party and also give me a boost into the future, enabling me to say ‘yes’ to many opportunities about which I have thus far been ambivalent,” she continued. “The money that you contribute will set me on a pathway to a brighter future, and for that I will be forever grateful.”
The Maxim Hot 100 Party was held last weekend and Wilke, luckily, was able to attend it despite only garnering less than $900. She posted on Instagram a picture of her at the event and said in a recent GoFundMe update that she was glad she made it to the bash.
“The Maxim Hot 100 party was so much fun, and I ended up making some business connections which is always welcomed along with new friends,” she wrote. “You guys are making a difference in my life!”
