    Yeah, I thought so too. We did the Party for the Senses several years ago (I think the cost was $95 per person at the time). We were not happy with it at all. Can't say as thought I'd do it again.

    However, some of those sound really nice. I would love to do the Gala, but $450 I haven't got for that!

    Of course, I could take a page from Dawn's book and offer to photo any of the special events for the price of tickets to the event! Teasing of course!

    Uhhh, that info is at the end of my post.

    Yes, some of those tickets are expected to be gone by 7:05.

    Ahhh, if only I had an extra $450 lying around!
