Before we head down the "bad ole rich chef" road, just so you know, this event benefits the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. The chefs do not receive any of the proceeds. In fact, the Liasion Hotel is donating the space, Chef Art is donating most of the food (with the other chefs donating the rest), and a South African wine maker is donating the wine.

Relative to other large charity events, the price is reasonable, and this one features the talents of a number of popular chefs.

This event, in addition to a very small fund raiser to be held in NY is the major source of funding for the NMCF, USA this year. 100% of the proceeds after expenses will benefit the lives of children through various programs including working with children with disabilities, developing leadership and excellence skills and improving the lives of orphaned children. The Fund strives to support the overall wellbeing of children.

Please do not turn a charity event for a very worthy cause into something sorrid.

Nobody was going there. I simply posted the cost of the event, because it's an important piece of information that was missing from your post.
