ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The cost to stand in the room with President Barack Obama for a fundraiser: $25. The cost for premier seating: $50,000.

Obama will be appearing before at least two groups of people March 10 when he attends a Democratic fundraiser at a St. Louis hotel.

Online invitations show people can stand at a "grassroots reception" for a $25 donation.

Tickets for a cocktail reception and presidential dinner start at $2,400 per guest. Those who raise $50,000 can get premier seating and the title of "event chair."

The fundraiser will benefit Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
