Ms Sarah Cummins, had paid US$30,000 (S$41,000) for a plated 170-seat dinner last Saturday (July 15) at the swanky Ritz Charles in Carmel, Indiana. I called everyone, canceled, apologized, cried, called vendors, cried some more, and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing away all the food I ordered for the reception, ' Cummins told the outlet.
