Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser in Seattle next week to bolster the campaign of his wife, Democratic front-runner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The Dec. 3 noon event is scheduled for Capitol Hill’s Century Ballroom, according to copies of the invitation. Tickets range from $500 for the “friend” level, $1,000 for “sponsor” and $2,700 for “champions,” who get a photo with the former president.

No public events have been announced and a Clinton campaign spokesman said the event would be closed to the media.

The former president has started to take a more public role in his wife’s presidential campaign in recent months.

POLITICO reported earlier this month that Bill Clinton was set to headline at least 20 fundraisers in 14 states, including the Dec. 3 Seattle visit.

The Clinton campaign has raised more than $76 million already, according to the Federal Election Commission, compared with $41 million for her nearest rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

In Washington state, Clinton has raised about $950,000, compared with about $560,000 for Sanders.
