Vice President Kamala Harris will be on the Vineyard Saturday for a reelection fundraiser hosted by the Biden Victory Fund.

An invitation to the Aug. 12 event listed Carol and C. Bernard Fulp, Robin Leeds and Wendell Pierce as hosts and noted that the event was paid for by the joint fundraising committee authorized by Biden for President, the Democratic National Committee, and several state democratic parties.

The exact time and location of the fundraiser, titled “A Grassroots Reception,” were not disclosed in the invitation.

“The future of our country is at stake and your engagement is critical,” Ms. Leeds wrote in an email with the invitation. “This gathering is an opportunity to come together, reflect on our progress, and plan for the future we envision.”

Ms. Harris is no stranger to the Island. She came to the Vineyard last August for a fundraiser after holding a reproductive health care roundtable in Boston. In a 2009 interview with the Gazette, she said she visits the Island almost every summer to see family.

Maya Lakshmi Harris, the vice president’s sister, owns a home in Katama.

Preparations for this visit were already underway Monday. A large military plane had landed at the airport ahead of the visit, airport director Geoff Freeman said. He referred all other questions to the White House.

Ms. Leeds, one of the hosts, is a presidential appointee on the President's Advisory Committee on the Arts and the CEO of Winning Strategies, LLC, a public affairs and political consulting firm based in Washington, D.C.

Ms. Fulp is the founder of Fulp Diversity and was the U.S. representative to the United Nations general assembly under President Barack Obama.

Tickets for the event ranged from $50 to $10,000.

The Cape and Islands have been popular areas for the 2024 campaign trail so far.

First Lady Jill Biden visited Provincetown and Nantucket earlier this summer. The vice president's fundraiser also comes less than two weeks after Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor Ron DeSantis held his own fundraiser on Cape Cod, 16 miles from the Island where he sent 49 Venezuelan migrants last September.
