Vice President Joe Biden is set to headline a fundraiser in Phoenix that will benefit President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic campaigns.

Officials with Obama’s re-election campaign say Biden will attend the fundraising lunch for 100 donors at the Heard Museum in central Phoenix late Thursday morning.

Tickets to the event started at $500. An invitation posted online shows seats topped out at $40,000 for a table seating seven with a photo opportunity with the Vice President.

Biden has no public events scheduled during his visit to Arizona.
