(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton will appear Sunday alongside President Barack Obama at a fund-raiser for Obama's re-election effort, a campaign official told CNN.
More than 500 supporters will attend a reception with the two presidents, and 80 will attend a dinner at the house, the campaign official said. Tickets for the reception started at $1,000 a person and tickets for the dinner were $20,000 a person.
The event is the first of three joint fund-raisers that Obama and Clinton will headline together.
Clinton's wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will not be on the campaign trail this year, a senior administration official said, in keeping with tradition and to allow her to focus on her official duties.
