Would Canadians pay $200 per plate for Sarah Palin?

Sarah Palin is scheduled to visit Hamilton, Ontario in April as a guest speaker at a hospital fundraiser.

It is expected that it will cost $200,000.00 to bring Palin to Hamilton. The 1000 seat banquet centre will host a banquet with various ticket prices up to $200.00 each. Details are still being decided.

It is curious, and perhaps hypocrital, that Palin will be in town to raise money for two local hospitals when she is/was an outspoken supporter of private health care in the U.S.

Why not just host a dinner without Palin and give the proceeds to the hospitals?

Other U.S. celebrities that have attended charitable fundraisers at this banquet centre are: Bill Clinton; George Bush Sr.; Margaret Thatcher, Mario Cuomo. Canadian Prime Ministers Jean Chretien and Paul Martin and even Italian actress Sophia Loren.

Palin will make a presentation and have a question-answer session. The topic has been left open.

Would you pay $200.00 per plate to hear Palin?

@Intrepid,
I wouldn't let them pay me $20 plus the free meal to listen to her speak.

@djjd62,
That would be up to Carmen's Banquet Centre. It may cost 25ΓΈ extra.

@tsarstepan,
Understandable. I can, however, vouch for the food at Carmen's. Smile

@Intrepid,
Then I guess I would attend if they paid me and gave me a free meal, and I was seated at a table with an obstructed view and farthest away from the audio system. Do you think they'd mind if I ate in the kitchen?

@hamburgboy,
The gala dinner hasn't been canceled, and Governor Palin still is the honored guest and speaker - your own article confirms that.

Another politically correct and factually wrong post, eh, Intrepid - do you ever think of trying any other kind?!

Where have you been? She resigned! She will NOT be a governor in April!

@hamburgboy,
You were correct in that the benefit for the hospitals has been cancelled. Your article does indicate that a children's charity will now benefit from the proceeds.

It does make one wonder why they are going ahead with a different charity.

Highseas does seem to be upset with both your and my posts.

I hope all is well with you.

@Intrepid,
I guess we'll just have to try a little harder to keep the former governor out of the area. I wonder who we'd have to embarrass to make it not happen?

Then again, Sheila Copps is from Hamilton. She might be able to throw some excellent political punches over this.

@ehBeth,
We don't hear much from Sheila anymore.

Know what would be funny? If Sarah comes to Hamilton and nobody shows up.
