Todd Christie and Palatucci co-chaired the governor's 2010 inaugural committee. Palatucci is one of Christie's closest advisers. He also chaired Christie's re-election campaign.

The inaugural festivities will take place Jan. 21. Information on purchasing tickets and other details will be released in coming days. Proceeds from the events will be donated to charity.

Christie's first inaugural netted nearly half a million dollars for three charities selected by the Republican.
