The guests who attended said the chance to avoid cooking and doing dishes was a motivating factor but they were all happy the money went to such a good cause.”I know people are still hurting over there so it’s kind of neat for us, this far away, to help wherever we can,” says Carlota Verge an Events Manager at Spectacular Events, “it’s nice for everyone to get out and not have to cook. I already had a some of the guests say they were glad they didn’t have to do dishes as well as let us do the work.”Tickets cost $25 for adults and $10 for kids under 12. Children five and under got in free. All the proceeds collected went to the Red Cross Haiti relief fund.
