(ABC News) — President Obama will be joined by Bill Clinton at a fundraising reception and dinner tonight. It is the first time the former occupant of the White House has openly joined the current commander in chief on the campaign trail.

The event is being hosted at the McLean, Va., home of Terry McAuliffe, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and personal friend of the Clinton family.

Reflecting a fundraising arms race among the candidates, price tags for the venue are hefty. Five hundred supporters are expected to attend the reception, with tickets starting at $1,000 a person. The Obama campaign says 80 will be present for the banquet, with individual donations of $20,000 donation necessary for that event

McAuliffe tells ABC News the evening will bring in over $3 million combined.
