(CNN) – Before President Barack Obama heads to the Los Angeles home of actor George Clooney for a big money fundraiser Thursday night, he will headline two campaign events in Seattle.

The president is expected to attend a fundraising brunch with 70 supporters at a private home in Seattle Thursday afternoon, according to a campaign official. Tickets for the event cost $17,900 per person.

Later, he will deliver remarks at a fundraising reception, with 1,800 people in attendance at the historic Paramount Theater in the downtown area of Emerald City. Dave Matthews is expected to perform at the second event, tickets for which started at $1,000 per person.

Proceeds from the events will go toward the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of the president's re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and several state Democratic parties.
