MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Walker plans to work early Tuesday morning, after hundreds of supporters joined Wisconsin's new first family for the inaugural ball.

An estimated 3,000 people filled the Monona Terrace Monday night.

Governor Walker was celebrated with family friends and his supporter.

A campaign member says it's been a whirlwind day for the 45th governor of Wisconsin and his family.

"It's an exciting time for the family they're transitioning from life in Milwaukee to life here in Madison and that's a big change for the family," said Jill Bader, Friends of Scott Walker Campaign.

Tickets cost $50 a person, $25 for students.

Leaders with the Scott Walker committee say a quarter of the money raised Monday night will go towards the governor's re-election campaign. The rest will go to the Wisconsin Republican Party.

Former democratic Governor Jim Doyle also hosted his inaugural balls at the Terrace in January 2003 and 2007. Leaders with the Democratic Party say all of his proceeds were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of America.
