SEATTLE -- President Barack Obama will visit Boeing in Everett during his visit on Friday.

The White House says Obama will talk about domestic manufacturing and promoting American exports at the aerospace giant's Everett facility.

That same day Obama is scheduled to host a pair of fundraisers in the Seattle suburbs.

The details posted on his campaign website show he will participate in a Medina brunch followed by a Bellevue lunch.

The $17,900-per person brunch is being hosted at the private home of Susan and Jeff Brotman, a co-founder of Costco Wholesale Corp.

The lunch is hosted at a hotel and costs $1,000 per person.

The more expensive gathering will provide $5,000 per person to his re-election campaign while the remainder of each donation goes to the Democratic National Committee.

The president is expected to return to Washington, D.C., on Friday.
