Washington (CNN) - The Romney campaign is inviting major donors and bundlers to a fall retreat set for October in New York City, CNN has learned.
According to an invitation, obtained by CNN, financial backers are invited to events spanning three days day scheduled to coincide with the second presidential debate, which is being held on Long Island, New York.

The retreat, which is seemingly patterned over a similar event held in June in Park City, Utah, starts with a dinner on Monday Oct. 15th and then includes three sessions the next day discussing various facets of the campaign and a debate watch party that night. The sessions are entitled "Campaign and Strategy Briefing," "Issues Facing America," and "Media Panel – The Final Three Weeks."
No word on who may participate in these panels, but if the Park City event is any indication it will probably be some of the top officials of the campaign as well as leading voices in the Republican Party. Several hundred major donors and bundlers attended the Utah gathering, which not only featured a speech by Mitt Romney himself but appearances by Sen. John McCain, former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, Sen. Rob Portman, Gov. Bobby Jindal and eventual running mate Rep. Paul Ryan.
There is no official word about whether Romney or Ryan will attend all or part of this retreat.
These kinds of events also allow the top money backers of the campaign to mingle and interact with key decision makers of the campaign.
"As we enter the home stretch, we want to thank you for your support of the Romney Victory effort. We would not have reached this point without the help from generous donors like you; and Governor Romney and conservatives across this country are extraordinarily grateful for all you have done. We are excited to announce the details for a few of the activities that we have planned between now and Election Day," Romney national finance chairman Spencer Zwick said in an email to financial backers Thursday inviting them to this retreat.
