Dinner to die for?

I was reading a UK magazine at work today and there was an article on a fundraiser that was done earlier this year.  Called Cafe de mort. As the purpose of the event was to raise awareness of leaving a bequest to charity as part of your will.  Dinner guests had to sign a waiver releasing the charities from any responsibility in the event of death or illness.
Menu included Japanese puffer fish (a la Homer Simpson), snake, poisonous mushroom, presumably absinthe
It appears the event was a success - as well as being sold out, and I presume not cheap, it got a lot of publicity 
I don't see us being able to do anything like this for Arthritis New Zealand - would be amazing if we could.Poisonous and Psychotrophic Mushrooms Poster
