OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is holding a fundraiser in a Seattle suburb later this month that costs $17,900 per person to attend.

The details posted on his campaign website on Wednesday show he will participate in a Medina brunch followed by a Bellevue lunch on February 17. The brunch at a private home costs $17,900 per person while the lunch at a hotel costs $1,000 per person.

The more expensive gathering will provide $5,000 to his re-election campaign and the remainder to the Democratic National Committee.

Obama previously visited Seattle in September for fundraisers.
