A guest list for the private event has not been released, but Christie's representative said it's meant for Zuckerberg and his wife's social network of friends. The maximum donation for New Jersey is a limit of $3,800, and is expected to attract some Silicon Valley heavy hitters.
Zuckerberg is not registered with either party. He attended a high profile dinner for President Obama at venture capitalist Jon Doerr's house in 2011, and hosted a town hall for Obama at Facebook.

The social network's CEO and Governor have fostered a friendship over the past nearly three years. They met in 2010 before Zuckerberg donated $100 million to Newark public school, which he announced with Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker on Oprah.
On Oprah's couch, back on September 24, 2010, Zuckerberg explained: "We're setting up a $100 million challenge grant so that Mayor Booker and Governor Christie can have the flexibility that they need to implement new programs in Newark — and really make a difference and turn Newark into a symbol of educational excellence for the whole nation."

Zuckerberg's interest lies in improving education. Christie has been working on education reform, focusing on teachers unions and expanding charter schools. Zuckerberg recently stepped up his education-related philanthropy — in December he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, donated 18 million shares to the Silicon Valley Community foundation. At the time that donation was worth about $500 million, and its appreciated since then.
