Former President Clinton is set to headline a fundraiser Friday in Seattle to raise money for the campaign of his wife, Democratic presidential front-runner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The reception is scheduled from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Century Ballroom on Capitol Hill.

Tickets will cost $250 for a limited number of “young professional” spots, up to $2,700 for “champion” seats including a photo with the former president, according to the invitation.

Friday’s event will be closed to the media, a spokesman for President Clinton said in an email. No public events have been announced.

The visit comes as the former president is taking a more visible role in his wife’s campaign — and becoming a target for at least one Republican presidential rival. Donald Trump recently attacked Hillary Clinton by calling her husband “one of the greatest abusers in the world” — a reference to the ex-president’s reported extramarital affairs.

President Clinton’s visit to Seattle is a rescheduling of a December fundraiser that was postponed due to the death of former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, a close friend of the Clintons.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has raised more than $112 million in 2015, according to a campaign news release.

She led all presidential candidates in cash from Washington donors, pulling in $946,000 through the third quarter of the year, compared with $558,000 for her nearest rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to Federal Election Commission reports.
