    Guys it's for charity, and it's a tax writeoff, stop looking at the $$$ and the bigger picture. Should be a great time for a great cause.

    I doubt you "stopped looking at the $$$" as a means to get to a point where you were finacially secure enough to tell other people to do so.

    Lol. Agree.

    Sounds like I great event, and I like doing things for charity, but money is a bit tight these days, and I could barely afford to renew my $720 (plus another $200 for parking) season tickets this year. I will see Owen at the stadium this fall.

    From what I have found out it's

    - Owen Daniels
    - Catt Schaub
    - Steve Slaton

    I figure Owen will blow his knee on the grill and Matt will throw a steak that Steve will fumble and drop on the ground when he gets to my table!

    LMAO. Hope you have fun, should be a cool event. Usually people at higher dollar events didn't pay for it and aren't necessarily the biggest fans - usually making it pretty easy to get photos, autographs and/or chit chat with the players. So go prepared!

    $250 per guest
    Inclusive of tax, gratuity and valet service

    Actually, it's a pretty good deal if the meal is included in the $250.00. I like Morton's and this is easily $100- $125 per person. Too bad I have to fly back this Afternon.

    The Menu.

    Menu for the Evening

    Hors d'oeuvres
    Tuna Tartare Canapes
    Miniature Crab Cakes
    Roma Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella & Basil on Crostini

    First Course
    Colossal Shrimp Alexander

    Second Course
    Mixed Field Greens Salad

    Third Course
    Double Cut Filet Mignon
    Accompanied by Mashed Potatoes and Steamed Fresh Jumbo Asparagus

    Fourth Course
    Dessert Trio: New York Cheesecake, Double Chocolate Mousse, Fresh Seasonal Berries and Sabayon Sauce

    Ok,

    My wife and I went into this not knowing what to expect, and man were we surprised. This has to be one of the best things we have done in the last year easily. The players were all great, came around signed a football for us, the food was great as well. If you have a chance to do this and unsure if you the money is well spent, the food was all inclusive along with many wines we got to taste. We were ear to ear grins all night.

    My wife got pictures with everyone but Matt, as I was off working on a silent bid trying to win a signed helmet from Demeco Ryans... Needless to say after some high bids I dropped out.
