Georgia Congressman John Lewis will be the guest of honor at a West Palm Beach fundraiser Sunday to kick off Florida U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings’s 2018 re-election bid.

In an email to supporters, Hastings — who represents District 2, and is  currently serving his 13th term in Congress — said he is “honored to be joined by Civil Rights Icon Congressman John Lewis” on June 4.

Tickets for the event range from $200 to $1,000, according to the email.
