Bondi to headline Pasco's Reagan Day Dinner next week

NEW PORT RICHEY — Attorney General Pam Bondi will headline the Pasco Republican Party's Reagan Day Dinner next week, and organizer Bill Bunting said he expects Democrats and groups linked to the Democratic Party to protest outside the event as they did last year.

Bunting, a Republican state committeeman, said the protests have become a routine sideshow at the annual fundraising dinner. Last year, when Sen. Marco Rubio headlined the event, protesters, including members of Pasco's Democratic Party and the National Organization for Women, lined up at 5:30 p.m. as guests were arriving.

This year's event is set for May 31 at the Spartan Manor, 6121 Massachusetts Ave. It starts with hors d'oeurves at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. Already 400 are signed up to attend.

Tickets start at $90 and will remain available through May 26. Contact Bunting, (727) 514-7676, or co-organizer Fred Manno, (813) 838-3556 for tickets.
