The estimated $1 million raised at the reception will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.
While the president's in Washington, the vice president attends a fundraiser in Phoenix, Arizona in the afternoon, followed by two more campaign events in Los Angeles.
According to a different campaign official, 100 people are expected to attend a fundraising luncheon at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, with tickets starting at $500. The fundraisers in Los Angeles are both being held at private residences.
