WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are headlining a fundraiser next month for the Clinton Foundation.

Chelsea Clinton will join her parents for a reception and dinner on Sept. 9 in Washington. That's according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press.

The event costs $1,000 a person for a cocktail reception and $25,000 a couple for a reception and dinner at the family's Washington residence.

The former first lady joined the foundation this year. She's working on projects related to early childhood education and the rights of women and girls around the globe.

The Clintons were holding a fundraiser for the foundation Friday in Bridgehampton, N.Y.
