Obama to attend fundraisers at Costco founder's home & Bellevue Westin
More details of President Obama's Feb 17 Seattle visit are emerging.
In addition to an as-yet unspecific official event, Obama will attend two political fundraisers, according to his campaign.
The first is a $17,900-per-person brunch at the Medina home of Jeff and Susan Brotman.
The Brotmans are one of the area's best-known power couples and longtime Democratic patrons. He is best known as co-founder of Costco Wholesale; she is a former Nordstrom executive active in philanthropy. They hosted First Lady Michelle Obama at their home in 2010.
The brunch will be followed by a $1,000-a-person fundraising lunch at the Bellevue Westin. Donors can pay $5,000 for a photo reception with the president.
Local indie-folk band The Head and the Heart will perform at the Bellevue luncheon.
The money raised by the events will be divided between Obama's re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
