The event, with tickets going for $500 to $5,000, will be held at a mansion on Parrish Pond Lane and is one of three events Zacarese is planning for the weekend. He is challenging State Sen. Phil Boyle, the county GOP’s designee for sheriff, in the Sept. 12 primary.

The invitation also lists Southampton Councilman Stan Glinka. He said he did not give permission for his name to be used and is backing Boyle for sheriff.
