ATLANTA (AP) -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will be in Atlanta for a fundraiser with less than two weeks until Election Day.

There are three giving levels at the Cobb Energy Centre event, according to the invitation from Mitt Romney's campaign.

A $500 individual contribution or $1,000 for a couple will get you into a reception at 6 p.m. Wednesday. At $10,000, a contributor gets a photo with Ryan. The Wisconsin congressman will hold a roundtable discussion at 7 p.m., with a $25,000 admission per couple.

Those higher levels exceed the contribution limits set in federal law, but Romney and President Barack Obama get around the caps by directing money to organizations that are technically separate from their principal campaign accounts.

Ryan's events are closed to the public and media.
