Former President Bill Clinton will be headlining the Center for American Progress’ annual fundraiser next month, according to Politico.

The event will be an opportunity for Clinton to speak in front of progressive leaders, elected officials, and the progressive movement’s largest political donors.

Clinton is speaking on May 14, just months after his wife, Hillary Clinton, addressed an event honoring the group’s tenth year in existence.

“We’re very honored to have him,” said CAP President Neera Tandem, who worked in the Clinton White House before joining Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2000 and her presidential effort in 2008. The group has been host at past events to speakers such as President Barack Obama, and has held events with Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The May event typically is made up of progressive leaders, elected officials and donors.
