Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will headline a big-ticket fundraising event for the Democratic National Committee in October, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.

The pair will star at the DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum conference, taking place in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16 and 17. The event, which has been held each year since 1993, will focus on the 2020 election. Past headliners have included former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.

The event will be Warren’s second appearance at a DNC fundraiser in recent months, as her presidential campaign continues to gain popularity. Warren has sworn off closed-door fundraisers for her own presidential bid during the primary, but in August, Warren spoke to party donors at an event in San Francisco benefiting the DNC.

In addition to Warren and Pelosi, the Women’s Leadership Forum event will feature more than a dozen lawmakers, including freshman Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Abigail Spanbergerof Virginia and Lauren Underwood of Illinois and other Democrats, including Kentucky Senate candidate Amy McGrath and former Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
