That dinner and price of ticket was an absolute JOKE! Thanks for the BBQ backup comment Broker ... anyone else have a comment on the BBQ or when does a "fundraiser turn into a rip off?"
A couple things here to comment on. First, this was a public event. I feel the dinner/concert and the raffle(?) and auctions were handled more like a DU event, maybe not as high dollar event but like a DU event just the same. The general public expects more. Like for instance, raffling off the desert the caterer supplied was beyond tacky, to those who noticed that was what was going on.
I will say in defense of both the OWF and the caterer, the fairgrounds personnel assured that there would be power available and so, the caterer did not bring her generator. If they would have had the power, the food would have been hot or, at least warm. Still wouldn't have been any bigger portions but, just saying.
I'll have to go check out the OWF FB page and see what is being said and asked.
I probably wouldn't pay the $30 if I had it to do over.
