Last night, according to the provincial Liberals, the premier's annual fundraising dinner had over 1,600 people in attendance. The party has declined to say how much money the dinner brought in. But, at $350 per head, the Liberals could have grossed more than $560,000 - assuming none of the tickets were comped. That's more than the Dinner Under the Sails has made in the past four years, according to an analysis compiled by Public Eye. But it's less than the event's $633,998.84 high-water mark in 2003.
