Ommegang charity event features Huey Lewis and the News

huey.jpgHow much would you pay for an open bar of Ommegang, premium h’ordeuvres, hobknobbing with ESPN celebs and a performance by Huey Lewis and the News?

If you answered $195, in addition to being eerily correct, you will also be excited about this Catskill Area Hospice charity event hosted at Brewery Ommegang on July 1st.

A little rich for my blood, but the main character from American Psycho would be there with bells and whistles.

From the official PDF invite:

  1. What ESPN celebrities? Too rich for my blood as well but might be a great deal depending on the “celebrities”. Unless of course Erin Andrews will be there, then I will be there.

  2. Your missing out….Its about raising money you loser. Get a life. Hospice does amazing things for dying people and there living families!

  4. Where in my post did I say that I did not support the fundraiser or think it is a good idea? Where did I say hospice is a bad thing or that I am against donating.
    All I said is that $150 is a steep price tag these days and if you are going to partly justify the price tag with the use of “celebrities” you might want to use actual “celebrities”.
    The people who are puting this on put almost as much emphasis on the celebrities as the cause so if you want to blindly criticize someone maybe you should start there.
    Read and think critically and intelligently before you criticize someone, and most importantly do not do it anonymously. Your entitled to your opinion but let us know who you are.
    If you can easily afford the $150 god bless, but to some of us donating $1 to the firemen who are doing a coin drop is just fine.
    Especially when we don’t criticize others who don’t.

  5. Anonymous: I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone against raising money for Hospice… but it’s fair to acknowledge this particular event has a prohibitive price tag for many people, and may not align with everyone’s tastes. That said, I’m sure it will be a success, and that’s great.
