I am hoping to get some help here...I am planning a party for a friend who was recently appointed head hockey coach at an Ivy league school. It is an invitation only party and we are charging $10/per person to cover the cost of food. It will be a cash bar. The night is an open house where people can drop in to share their best wishes with him...it is being held at a local club that we have rented out. He is a very well liked and well known resident, but I feel funny about asking for money- can it be done tastefully within the invitaion or should I recruit his closest friends ( my husband and I among them) to cover the cost ( about 5-6 hundred dollars). I am feeling strange about saying you are invited and the cost is...but realize there must be a way to do this tastefully as there have been events in the past where we have been invited to a night of fun that had a cost to participate. But I want to do this right!!
