Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden heads to Missouri and Indiana Monday to raise campaign cash.

The vice president will be the center of attention at fundraisers in Kansas City, Missouri and Munster, Indiana. The Kansas City fundraiser will be a luncheon at a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $5,000 and the Munster event will also be held a private residence, with ticket prices starting at $250, an Obama re-election campaign official told CNN.

The money raised at the two gatherings will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the Obama re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.

The Obama re-election campaign and the DNC brought in a combined $53 million in March. The campaign had $104 million cash on hand as of April 1. Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House broke all records by raising nearly $750 million.

Then-Senators Barack Obama and Joe Biden won Indiana in the 2008 presidential election, and narrowly lost Missouri.
