Fahrenheit Fact no. 21: Bush was raising money for charity during "have mores" quote

From an old(er) CNN.com article:
They [Bush and Gore] traded barbs Thursday night during the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner which, while known for its irreverence and political wit, also raised $900,000 for health care programs in the Archdiocese of New York.
What else?:
Bush looked out over the well-dressed audience and declared it an impressive gathering of the "have and have-mores." "Some people call you the elite, I call you my base," he said.
