“I tested positive for COVID Thursday afternoon, the day after the annual Robin Hood dinner. I had a negative PCR test for COVID on Monday, but I took another PCR test on Thursday after a co-worker at my home tested positive,” Jones said in a statement provided to CNBC. “Every person at the dinner was vaccinated and we are sharing information as we have it. I feel fine, have no temperature and am following COVID protocols. If I have inadvertently exposed anyone, I am truly and deeply sorry.”

Jones co-founded the foundation in the 1980s and is currently a member of the group’s board of directors. He has a net worth of $7.8 billion, according to Forbes. The Robin Hood Foundation separately noted that Jones “followed all protocols and was not exhibiting any symptoms on the night of the annual benefit. Everyone who meets the CDC guidelines for a high-risk exposure has been personally contacted.”

A spokesman for the foundation explained in an email to CNBC on Friday that they “have contacted all our guests, several of whom we have spoken to verbally.”

There were 3,000 attendees at the Jacob Javits Center, according to an announcement at the event.

The foundation’s dinner featured musical performances by Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys and the Jonas Brothers. Legendary Beatle Paul McCartney attended and was honored at the gathering of some of New York’s wealthiest business leaders.

There were other political and business luminaries spotted at the dinner.

Billionaire and former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg was spotted. Democratic nominee for mayor Eric Adams was spotted peaking with attendees. New York Attorney General Letitia James and former congressman Max Rose also were at the Javits Center during the event. James has been considering running for governor.

Mike Novogratz, a former hedge fund manager, made a speech and is also on the board of directors.

That night alone the foundation announced they raised over $70 million. The foundation is known to combat poverty in New York City.

Since its inception, the Robin Hood Foundation has been backed by some of the most influential executives on Wall Street. Their current board also includes Goldman Sachs executive Dina Powell McCormick, the CEO of Goldman Sachs David Solomon, the president of Greenlight Capital David Einhorn and David Tepper, the president of Appaloosa Management.

McCormick is also the vice chair of the organization.
