    Welcome to German.SE. What makes you think one of them is wrong? Please clarify what you mean with the last question, I cannot interpret it. – Shegit Brahm Mar 19 '20 at 15:44

The idiomatic phrase is

jemand zu etwas einladen (Dativ)

The phrase "jemand für etwas einladen (Akkusativ)" would be certainly understood; but it sounds very strange if not even wrong to a native speaker's ear.
