(CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden heads to Chicago Tuesday afternoon to headline a fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund.
According to a source with knowledge of the event, Biden will be the main attraction at a gathering of about 15 to 20 people at Navy Pier. Tickets for the fundraiser range from $5,000 to the legal maximum limit of $35,800. The money raised from the event will go to the Obama Victory Fund, with the proceeds being shared by both the president's re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
The gathering comes one day after President Barack Obama was the main attraction at two fundraisers at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the nation's capital. The president headlines two more fundraisers Thursday in New York City.
Democratic sources say the Obama Victory Fund hopes to bring in $60 million by the end of the second quarter, which comes to a close at the end of the month. Obama shattered all records by raising nearly $750 million in his bid for the White House in 2008.
Following the political fundraiser, the vice president says at Navy Pier to speak at an event to raise funds for Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE), a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for epilepsy.
