The $pectator Still Manages To Raise Money

Written by

spec $$

Once a year, Speccies dress up like they’re in an episode of Gossip Girl and head to their Annual Awards Dinner. The dinner this year was held in the New York Athletic Club, which is the kind of place where if you enter wearing sneakers you have to take the servant’s elevator. We’ve heard reports that it’s pretty lavish. Recently, we discovered just how lavish; Spec’s donors/alumni spent $28,148.50 on dinner, drinks and a venue for the 200-person fundraising event. Says the Post:

The funds generated from the auction, along with the $250 entrance fee, are for more than Speccie keggers; they’re an essential part of keeping the 138-year-old paper, which has been financially independent from the University since 1962, afloat.

We don’t want to spend more time thinking about how awkward Spec’s keggers would be, so here’s the event invoice.

    spec commenters: no one reads spec. and its a newspaper. practically speaking, it is a completely superfluous publication. oh and for the most part, the writing really really sucks. no wonder you guys have to hold a 30k party to make yourselves feel important.

  4. wow  

    you're super petty and jealous, bwog. spec is an institution with an alumni base and donors. digitizing the archives was making history available for everyone. you think that was cheap? do you have that capacity? go back to doing your job, which is being terrible

    I'm just interested why the kosher meals cost so much more than the non-kosher ones.
