More details of President Obama’sÂ Feb 17 Seattle visitÂ are emerging.
In addition to an as-yet unspecific official event, Obama will attend two political fundraisers, according to his campaign.
The first is aÂ $17,900-per-person brunchÂ 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 aÂ $1,000-a-personÂ fundraising lunch at the Bellevue Westin. Donors can pay $5,000 for a photo reception with the president.
Local indie-folk bandÂ The Head and the HeartÂ 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.
