Fundraiser in Chief: You can pay up to $50,000 to see the president in Las Vegas

UPDATE: Clarified below that you must raise $50,000 or $25,000 for the event, not buy a ticket for that much.

When President Obama visits Las Vegas on Oct. 24, he will not just have a "luncheon and discussion" with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- he will be raising large amounts of money for his re-election campaign.

According to an invite I have posted at right, there are various levels from $1,000 up to raising $50,000 for the event, which gets you "co-chair" status and a photo. For raising $25,000, you can be a mere "host" and get a photo.

But no money from "minors under the age of 16." Good to know.
