Hope to see some of you tomorrow night at the Hilton Washington. Personally, I'm looking forward to yummy bites from The Inn at Little Washington, Granville Moore's, Eventide as well as quenching concoctions from Dino & PS7. If you're coming, say hi!

Are any portion of the ticket price tax deductible? Second, how is the food served? Third and Fourth, is anyone here hosting a table and if no one here is hosting a table, are there people who are interested in pitching in for a table and get $25 off the individual ticket price?

You can deduct the cost of your ticket as a tax-deductible charitable contribution minus $50 per ticket. (If you are purchasing a $250 ticket, $200 is tax deductible.)

And secondly, the food is served from stations, staffed by the celebrity chefs themselves, throughout the ballroom of the Hilton Washington.

Thank you for your questions, hope to see you there!
